Kimpton rose to the 16th spot on FORTUNE 2012 Best Companies to Work For List and Genentech was listed for the 14th consecutive year. Kimpton was recognized on the “Best Benefits” list for Work-Life Balance and Sabbaticals, the “Top Companies” list for Most Women and Most Diverse. Genentech similarly gained honors on the "Top Companies" list for Most Women and Most Diverse, the "Big Pay" list for both Salaried Employees and Hourly Employees, and the "Best Benefits" list for Sabbaticals.
FORTUNE works with Great Place to Work Institute (GPTWI) to evaluate and select companies based on one of the widest employee surveys in corporate America. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the Institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management's credibility, job satisfaction and camaraderie.
The other third of the scoring is based on the company's responses to the Institute's Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, internal communications, training, recognition programs and diversity efforts, among others.
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants also received for the 8th year a 100 percent score on HRC Corporate Equality Index in 2012 and Kimpton earned a #1 ranking on the San Francisco Business Times’ 2012 “Top Employer” List.
Genentech was named to San Francisco Business Times’ 2012 “Top Employer” List and in late 2011 was named to Science Magazine’s 2011 “Top Employer” List.
