18 Awesome Years on Fortune’s “100 Best” List!

We’re thrilled to announce that The Container Store has been named to Fortune’s annual list of 100 Best Companies to Work For for the 18th consecutive year. That’s EIGHTEEN AWESOME YEARS on this employer of choice list!!!!

We’re proud to have landed at #49 on the list this year, which is based on employee ratings of their workplace culture…including the level of trust they feel towards leaders, the pride they take in their jobs and the camaraderie they experience amongst co-workers.

“Being a part of this prestigious list is an honor and truly, an incredible gift from our employees,” said Melissa Reiff, CEO, The Container Store. “Taking excellent care of our customers – and all of our stakeholders – begins with first, taking care of our employees. We’re so appreciative of all our employees do every single day for each other and our company. As we strive to create an even better place to work and to shop, we’ll continue to operate our business through the lens of our Foundation Principles, our values-based business philosophies that guide every decision we make for our stakeholders.”

As part of today’s announcement, Fortune also recognized The Container Store for our 1 Great Person = 3 Good People Foundation Principle, which contributes to creating a culture that brings out the best in employees and makes them feel that everyone matters. They also mentioned that we offer health insurance for part-time employees, paid sabbaticals and 263 hours of training for full time employees in their first year. Over the past year, Great Place to Work® and Fortune have released additional top workplace lists in which we were also honored, including the Best Workplaces in Texas and Best Workplaces for Women.

We’re SO PROUD AND THANKFUL for every single one of our stakeholders – and especially our employees – for the work they do that ultimately creates a great work environment for us all. The reason we’re able to make this list year after year is because of every single person on our fantastic team working so hard and contributing their all to achieve our company’s collective success. Hugs and thanks to you all!

Join us as we celebrate this honor in a big way! We’ll be sharing our company celebration via Facebook Live on Friday, March 10th at 3:30 p.m. CST.
