Several companies in the housing industry made 2017’s Fortune 100 list for being great places to work.
Fortune Magazine ranks the “100 best companies to work for” every year. The magazine analyzes factors such as health coverage, telecommuting, job sharing, onsite childcare, compressed work-weeks, paid sabbaticals, onsite fitness center and many others to determine its rankings.
While some companies in the housing and banking industry are in hot water for their questionable company ethics, others made this year’s list of best places to work. In fact, a recent survey by J.D. Power shows that consumer trust in the banking industry remains strong.
Here are the 10 companies that earned a spot on the Fortune 100 list for best places to work:
#98: PCL Construction
This company slipped slightly from last year’s rank of 60, but remains on the list for its 12th year.
“Having PCL recognized as one of the best companies to work across the United States is a significant honor that we take tremendous pride in,” said Shaun Yancey, president and chief operating officer of U.S. operations. “It’s because of our employee’s hard work, dedication, and devotion to our company that we’re on this list, and have been for 12 straight years.”
#82: First American Financial Corp.
First American climbed up the ladder from last year’s ranking of 94, and marked its second year on the list.
