This year’s winning companies proved that you can create cultures where employees give extra at work without a cost to their mental health.

Discretionary effort — the willingness to give extra at work — is nearly 70% higher at the 2023 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® compared to a typical U.S. workplace, where record-low productivity levels are the norm.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the annual average productivity level decreased 1.3% from 2021 to 2022 — the largest annual decline since 1974.

Revenue per employee — another key productivity measure — increased 7% year-over-year for the 100 Best Companies. That’s almost double the 4% year-over-year revenue per employee increase among last year’s winners.

“It often seems easier to cut headcount to boost productivity, but you can’t cut your way to greatness,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work®, the global research and analytics firm that produces the 100 Best list. “It’s because these companies care for their people and prioritize well-being that they outperform. Not in spite of it.”

Sixty percent more employees at the 100 Best Companies say their workplace is psychologically and emotionally healthy compared to a typical employer, according to Great Place To Work market research.

Employees’ intent to stay and recruitment support are more than 50% higher at these workplaces than the typical employer.

“Make a high-trust culture your No. 1 priority,” Bush advises. “When your people win, you win,” Bush says. When everyone — no matter who they are or what they do — feels cared for, they’ll take care of you. It’s a virtuous cycle of care and support.”
