Being a great company to work for and offering extra perks and incentives to make sure employees know they are appreciated became even more important over the past year as workers' priorities changed during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Companies found themselves having to go above and beyond — increase wages, offer remote or hybrid work schedules and more — to retain workers during the Great Resignation.
But nearly 100 companies recognized at the Phoenix Business Journal's 2022 Best Places to Work awards on Dec. 8 were already ahead of the curve — offering fun, flexible workplaces with plenty of benefits beyond health insurance.
The firms that made this year's Business Journal's Best Places to Work lists — based on five company size categories — are either based in the Valley or have major operations here. They employ roughly 22,230 workers.
