Before America had to reconceive the whole notion of workplace, more than 3,000 companies applied to be named one of Inc.'s Best Workplaces. And we surveyed their employees, a record 370,000 of them, to better understand how they feel about their company. Not surprisingly, employees at these firms are engaged by their work, wherever it is--the average engagement score was 73.5 percent. But among the honorees, the typical score is above 90 percent. These are people who truly find meaning at work. And great benefits. Among the honorees, 100 percent provide health insurance. And 62 percent of them take employees to offsite retreats. It may be a while before those retreats resume, but even in these trying times, the best operators will find a way to attract and reward great workers.
