Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the 100 Best Companies to Work For list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee survey responses from more than 4.5 million current U.S. employees.

"From the way we collaborate to help create a better society, to how we stand up for one another, our customers, and our communities — together, we strive every day to do better for each other."
Great Place to Work evaluates companies based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
"This recognition is a testament to the passion and dedication of Team Dow to create a workplace and a world that embraces our differences as our greatest strength," said Karen S. Carter, Dow chief human resources officer and chief inclusion officer. "We know our business succeeds when our employees thrive. Realizing our purpose and ambition as a company requires an inclusive culture that enables our people to contribute their greatest value."
