Meaningful work, life balance makes SAS one of the world’s best workplaces

Great Places to Work names SAS No. 3 among World’s Best Multinational Workplaces

Analytics leader SAS is once again among the top workplaces in the world, in part due to a culture of innovation, creativity and work/life balance. Earning the No. 3 spot on the coveted list of the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces, SAS has long recognized the importance of giving employees a world-class work environment in which they can do meaningful work.

Since it began in 1976, SAS has helped set the bar for how to help employees balance their professional and personal lives.  Whether it’s a free healthcare center, subsidized child care, flexible and collaborative workspaces or subsidized gourmet meals, the company recognizes that the way we live matters – both on and off the job.

But ensuring that its employees have convenient access to a variety of services is only one piece of the SAS culture. What keeps SAS employees motivated is their passion for what they do. They crave challenging work and they want to make a difference in the world.  From enabling utilities companies to keep power grids stable and helping banks prevent credit card fraud, to fighting cancer and protecting endangered species, SAS and its employees use the power of analytics to make lives better.

“Our passion for doing good is what ignites our employees’ creativity and gives everyone the opportunity to effect change. It’s an honor that our commitment to providing an enriching work environment for our employees continues to be recognized,” said Jim Goodnight, SAS CEO.

This year alone, SAS has also been among the top workplaces in 10 countries: Australia, Austria, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, UK and the US.  

“The organizations on this year’s World’s Best Workplaces list represent the best of the best. They are at the vanguard of the FOR ALL movement, working to maximize the potential of everyone in a way that’s better for the business, better for the people and better for the world,” says Great Place to Work’s CEO, Michael Bush.

Eligible companies must appear on five or more national Great Place to Work lists over the past year and employ more than 5,000 worldwide. At least 40 percent of employees must work outside the company's home country. Companies on the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces list are rated highly by their employees, and meet high standards for HR policies and practices that support a culture of trust.
