Unfortunately, far too many people are stuck in dead-end jobs at poorly-managed companies. A recent Gallup poll found that about 77% of Americans hate their jobs, and a Zogby poll found that 49% of working Americans have suffered or witnessed workplace bullying.
GreatPlaceJobs was developed to help people find jobs at the best employers, because everyone deserves a great and satisfying career. GreatPlaceJobs is the largest site that features jobs exclusively at companies across the US that have been certified as great workplaces. Here are a few examples of awards that the companies featured on GreatPlaceJobs have received:
Our mission is to help people find satisfying jobs at great companies. Because we don't charge companies to post jobs, GreatPlaceJobs is the most comprehensive source of real jobs at the nation's best employers. Each month, GreatPlaceJobs typically features tens of thousands of new open jobs at great companies.
Top-ranked employers have proven themselves to be much more recession-proof than the average company. Award winning companies are much more likely to survive the current recession without suffering layoffs or a bankruptcy. A recent study found that, in 2008, companies recognized as great workplaces conducted layoffs half as often as a general sample of other companies. In addition, excellent employers had a higher revenue growth rate since the second half of 2008.
As a member of GreatPlaceJobs, you'll save time in your job search because you'll see only real, open jobs at certified great companies. Never again will you find yourself trolling through endless lists of low-quality job listings on other, less-targeted job boards! Get Started Now.
