For the 16th year in a row, we’re thrilled to be named as one of FORTUNE magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For®!! The Container Store landed at #27 overall on the list, up one spot from last year’s ranking!! Check out the full list and features on all of the honored companies at www.fortune.com/best-companies.
We’re proud that FORTUNE recognized us for the way we approached our IPO, setting aside 14% of our company’s total shares for our employees through our Direct Share Program, resulting in about a quarter of our employees now owning stock in our company. They also recognized us for our double-than-average retail industry pay.
Being included on this employer-of-choice list for sixteen SWEET years is truly one of our biggest accomplishments, as two-thirds of the score is determined by an anonymous employee survey. We work to put our employees first in everything we do – taking great care of them by paying them better and training them more.
Thank you to every single person who touches our business, making it greater and better every single day. We’re so excited about what the future holds for our special company and everyone associated with it – the best IS yet to come!!
