The annual employee survey by the business magazine Forbes includes a survey of 60,000 employees in American companies with at least 1,000 employees.
The surveyed organizational participants gave feedback on their workplace in terms of working conditions, career development opportunities, diversity, equal treatment, and salaries. They could also recommend other companies as employers.
Forbes' Best US Employers 2022 lists 500 large companies with more than 5,000 employees and 500 mid-sized companies with more than 1,000 employees that received the most recommendations among all respondents.
The ten top-rated large employers in the USA are:
|Rank||Best large US employers||Industry|
|1||The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia||Healthcare & Social|
|3||NASA||Aerospace & Defense|
|4||Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center||Healthcare & Social|
|5||Michelin Group||Automotive (Automotive and Suppliers)|
|7||Mayo Clinic||Healthcare & Social|
|8||Carvana||Retail and Wholesale|
|9||University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center||Healthcare & Social|
|10||MD Anderson Cancer Center||Healthcare & Social|
Interestingly, five out of ten top major employers in the USA are from the healthcare sector. This is not only because medicine is one of the strongest employment sectors in the United States, along with education and the service industry.
Above all, the healthcare sector in the US is well-paid. In addition to the top salaries of physicians and anesthesiologists, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, optometrists, physician assistants, midwives, and nursing managers also earn six-figure salaries.
Another interesting insight is a look at the top 10 mid-sized US companies, in which the construction and energy sectors, as well as the IT and software industries, stand out:
|Rank||Best mid-sized US employers||Industry|
|1||Vera Bradley||Clothing, Shoes, Sports Equipment|
|2||FICO||IT, Internet, Software & Services|
|3||PCL Construction||Construction, Oil & Gas Operations, Mining, and Chemicals|
|4||Penguin Random House||Media & Advertising|
|5||Gentex||Automotive (Automotive and Suppliers)|
|6||Celanese||Construction, Oil & Gas Operations, Mining, and Chemicals|
|8||Advanced Technology Services||Business Services & Supplies|
|9||Aera Energy||Construction, Oil & Gas Operations, Mining, and Chemicals|
|10||Sirius Computer Solutions||IT, Internet, Software & Services|
That the ratings of foodservice employers have deteriorated under the weight of the pandemic with its surges of layoffs, making them unlikely to appear on Forbes' 2022 lists, is no surprise.
The survey also revealed a major shift in Americans' attitudes towards working from home. Where technologically possible, generous home office arrangements are now commonplace.
