SAS workplace again heralded among Europe’s best multinationals

Great Place to Work® recognizes companies exhibiting high-trust workplace cultures

For decades, analytics powerhouse SAS has been acknowledged worldwide as a leader and innovator in workplace culture, putting people first as a business imperative. As yet another testament, the company has again been listed among Europe’s top multinational workplaces by Great Place to Work®.

In 2016, more than 2,250 companies participated in surveys spanning 19 countries. SAS emerged among European leaders, having ranked among the top ten in Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and Greece over the past year. SAS has appeared on the European list since its inception in 2002.

“I’m particularly pleased that the excellent results of Spain and Portugal directly contributed to the European GPTW award this year,” said Gunter Cools, SAS Human Resource Director for South West Europe. Two and a half years ago, we created a new Iberia region; these rankings represent the success of the transition. SAS’ employee-oriented culture is based on trust, camaraderie and pride. Our employees came together into a fantastic Iberia organization in which we can maximize cross0country collaboration while keeping country identity in place.”

SAS, a perennial on best workplace lists, ranked #2 among multinational workplaces worldwide in 2015. The company has also earned honors as an attractive workplace for millennials, women, and recent graduates. Celebrating its 40th anniversary alongside 40 years of consecutive growth and profitability, SAS reaffirms the commitment to work/life balance that began 40 years ago, before such policies were commonplace.
