Corporate Responsibility: Employee Ratings of The CSR 100

When CR Magazine released its 100 Best Corporate Citizens list earlier this year, it was more than a celebration of corporate responsibility. Because the rankings were determined by criteria applied to companies in the Russell 1000, inclusion on the CSR 100 list was acknowledgement of success in two realms: financial value and community consciousness. But how do the CSR 100 firms rate, according to their employees? We compared the CSR 100 list with Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work list for 2016, creating a kind of triple crown of the triple bottom line—people, planet, and profit.

Glassdoor’s data is an accumulation of anonymous reviews and ratings by current and past employees. Among considerations are work-life balance, CEO ratings, and salaries. Applying its (undisclosed) algorithm to the ratings, the online review aggregator arrives at yearly lists of the best places to work according to the people who work there.

Of the 100 firms making the CSR list, three are included in the Glassdoor 50. Adobe is 19th on the Glassdoor list and 27th on the CSR 100 with a composite employee rating of 4.1 (of 5 stars). Chevron, 83rd on the CSR 100, is 39th on the Glassdoor list (3.9 stars). Southwest Airlines, 30th on the CSR list, is 42nd on the Glassdoor list (4.1 stars).

The highest employee rating on the Glassdoor list is 4.6, while the lowest of the top 50 companies is rated 3.9. Although they were not included in the Glassdoor 50, eight more of the CSR 100 firms had Glassdoor ratings in that range, including Microsoft (number 1 on the CSR 100), Johnson & Johnson (number 4), Texas Instruments (number 19), and NVIDIA (number 20). Notably, another 22 of the CSR 100 had Glassdoor ratings within two tenths of a point below the 3.9 cutoff, for a total of 30 CSR 100 companies with reasonable expectation of making the Glassdoor 100, if that list were to be extended.

Numbers like these, especially when presented in list form with no real context, don’t mean much by themselves, but they can serve as an interesting launch point for conversation about what makes a company successful, a good place to work, and perhaps admirable in ways any one rating might not reveal. Three firms make all three lists, and it would be difficult to consider such consistent esteem to be a glitch in three different methodologies. Almost any professional looking to make a change could do a lot worse than to begin with a financially successful, socially responsible corporation whose employees agree that it’s a good place to work.

It’s worth repeating: corporate social responsibility is not charity. Companies on the CSR 100 are first filtered for the health of their stocks, then rated according to a multi-faceted range of CSR criteria. Whether employee satisfaction is the direct result of those efforts or simply a reflection of employees’ buy-in in a kind of trickledown effect, the Glassdoor ratings can say a lot about the layers of integrity and value making these firms stand above others.
