Southern Company Named by Forbes as one of the World's Best Employers

Southern Company has been recognized by Forbes magazine on its World's Best Employers 2018 list. Earlier this year Southern Company was ranked by Forbes among the top 20 of America’s Best Employers.

“Our goal is to create an inclusive workplace and prioritize the well-being of our employees,” said Southern Company chairman, president & CEO Tom Fanning. “Southern Company’s talented, diverse and engaged employees are the heart of everything we do as we build the future of energy for our customers, our neighbors and our communities.”

The Forbes list is based on Forbes’ 2018 Global 2000 rankings, which includes publicly traded companies from 60 countries that account for $39.1 trillion in sales, $3.2 trillion in profit, $189 trillion in assets and $56.8 trillion in market value.

More than 430,000 global recommendations were analyzed by research firm Statista to create the World’s Best Employers list. Employees were asked to rate their own employer and the likelihood they would recommend the company to a friend or family member. They were also asked to recommend other employers they admired.
