SAS one of the World’s Best Workplaces

SAS secured the No. 2 spot on the elite “Top 25 World’s Best Multinational Workplaces” inaugural list from Great Place to Work®. SAS, the leader in business analytics software and services, was highlighted among the best for health care, child care and work-life balance.

SAS CEO Jim Goodnight said, "While we are delighted to receive this recognition, as a business leader I am most honored to know that the ranking is based on the feedback of our own employees around the world. Everything we do grows out of that philosophy. The real reward is what employees give back to the company and our customers."

SAS is recognized worldwide by Great Place to Work. SAS corporate headquarters in the United States and SAS Norway were both No. 1 on their country lists of " Best Companies to Work For " in 2010 and 2011.

To be eligible, companies must appear on five or more national Great Place to Work lists in the past year and have more than 5,000 employees worldwide, with at least 40 percent working outside the company’s home country. Companies on the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces list are rated by their employees to be among the best companies, and have excellent HR policies and practices that support a culture of trust.
