SAS celebrates 20th year as one of Fortune’s best US workplaces

Fortune magazine has released its 20th annual list of Best Companies to Work For in the US, and once again, SAS is among the elite group. A pioneer since 1976 in nurturing a supportive work environment, SAS has been a constant on the list for the past two decades and remains a national model for its inspiring culture and focus on employees.

“For 20 years running, SAS has landed a coveted spot on Fortune’s list of best workplaces. This hasn’t happened by chance,” said SAS Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Jenn Mann. “SAS helped set the standard for workplace culture more than 40 years ago, and we’ve continued to be a place where people feel valued and motivated. We are thrilled to see more and more companies rethinking their approach to workplace culture and increasing their focus on employees.”

Since SAS opened its doors, its world-renowned culture has encouraged employee creativity and innovation. By keeping employees nurtured and supported at all stages of their career, they stay motivated – and loyal. With the lowest turnover rate in the industry, SAS retains its experts and creates long-term, stable relationships that customers rely on. Analysts estimate that SAS annually saves millions of dollars on recruitment and training costs associated with employee turnover. Couple that savings with significant annual revenue investment in R&D, and it’s easy to see how SAS culture directly promotes innovation – and influences SAS’ continued profitability and growth.

Recognized consistently as a best workplace in countries around the world, SAS also tops the lists of great places to work for millennials, recent graduates, women, technology workers, working parents and single fathers.
