These are the best of the best 2019: the World's Best Workplaces

After the continent comes the world: In June the awards for the best employers in Europe took place, now we choose the best employers in the world! To make one thing clear: We are talking about the best of the best of the best! The first step is certification as an excellent employer, followed by participation in the national competition - for example, the "Best Workplaces in Switzerland". Of these winners, the best take part in the European competition. And of these winners, the best in turn enter the race to win the World's Best Workplace award.  

What the best in the world do even better

Well, the first-placed Cisco, for example, take Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to heart. CEO Chuck Robbins sets an example: two years ago, he initiated a five-year donation of 50 million dollars to a non-profit organization called Home, which helps homeless people in San Jose, where Cisco has its headquarters. This campaign also sparked sparks on the other Cisconians around the world and ignited their zeal for social responsibility. For example, an employee in South Africa opened an orphanage in Rwanda. But not enough: Cisco goes so far as to introduce CSR as a business priority.

The fourth-placed DHL also sets high standards in terms of human love and care. For example, DHL organizes a "DHL's Got Heart" award, where employees are honored for their private commitment to charitable activities. The winners receive the equivalent of almost CHF 27,000, which they can invest in charitable projects of their choice.
