We’re so excited to announce that we’ve made the FORTUNE list of 100 Best Companies to Work For for the 19th year in a row!
The best part? Our placement on this employer-of-choice list is based on an anonymous survey in which our employees rated elements of our workplace culture – so this honor comes directly from our employees! Our team members were asked about many different aspects of our workplace – including trust in managers, compensation, fairness, camaraderie and innovation. The ranking also takes into account the experiences of all employees, including women, people of color, LGBT individuals, older team members, and disabled employees.
As part of today’s announcement, FORTUNE specifically recognized The Container Store for our outstanding communication, pay that’s well above the industry’s average, and excellent benefits for both full- and part-time employees. 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 Retail, Best Workplaces for Women, Best Workplaces for Diversity, Best Workplaces in Texas and People Companies That Care lists.
We’d like to say a huge “thank you” to our employees for the work they do that ultimately creates a great workplace for us all! Their diligence, positive attitude, perseverance and commitment is truly remarkable. The reason we’re able to make the FORTUNE 100 Best 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.

And speaking of thanking our employees, the FORTUNE announcement just happened to coincide with a special holiday of our own—We Love Our Employees Day! This annual celebration is our opportunity to show love and appreciation to our employees all across the country, as well as our “Swedish cousins” at elfa International. It’s a day filled with hugs and fun, and we celebrate with colorful decorations, tasty treats, prize giveaways, and hearfelt handwritten “love notes” to each other! We look forward to it every year, and it’s a small way of showing each other how much we truly care.
Watch the video below to see our leadership team sharing a heartfelt message of thanks with all of our employees!
Happy FORTUNE Day AND We Love Our Employees Day to all! 😊
