SAS believes that maintaining a work/life balance carries over to long-term customer relationships."1

2] Founded by Henry Luce in 1930, Fortune is a US-based global business magazine published bi-weekly by Time Inc.
3] The ranking is calculated on the basis of the weighted average scored by a company in two types of survey carried out by the institute. The first one with two- thirds weightage was named the Trust Index survey where employees are arbitrarily selected and asked to fill a questionnaire regarding their evaluation of the job satisfaction received, trustworthiness of management, and mutual relationship among workers in that organization. The second study, known as the Culture Audit, having one third weightage, required employees to answer questions about the hiring process, communication, and diversity among the workforce, pay and benefit programs, etc.
4] Established in 1991, The Great Place to Work Institute, Inc. is a US-based research and management agency.
