Whoever wanted to become an employee all their life? With the inadequate wages and unsatisfactory work conditions, it may seem like an impossible future for many people around the world.

However, there are a few companies who not only put their employees’ needs at the top of their priorities but also go the extra mile to promote equity in their workforce. And, thanks to PEOPLE magazine, these companies are now getting the attention they deserve.

In partnership with research firm Great Place to Work, PEOPLE unveiled a list of 50 “Companies that Care” for their employees, community, and the world.

In its second consecutive year, the program is aimed at commending establishments that didn’t just deliver just compensation for their employees but also gave them more than they could ask for.
