Southern Company Named No. 14 on Forbes’ Ranking of America’s Best Employers

April 24, 2019

Southern Company ranked No. 14 on Forbes magazine’s 2019 list of America’s Best Employers. Of the 500 large employers ranked, Southern Company was No. 1 among industry peers, No. 1 among Atlanta-based companies and No. 1 in Georgia. This is the second consecutive year Southern Company ranked in the top 20, rising three spots from last year’s list.

“It is our mission to create a workplace where diverse perspectives are welcomed and employees feel comfortable, valued and appreciated,” said Southern Company chairman, president and CEO Tom Fanning. “This honor is particularly gratifying because it is directly based on employee feedback. Southern Company’s talented, diverse and engaged employees are the heart of everything we do as we build the future of energy.”

To determine the list, Forbes, working with research firm Statista, anonymously surveyed 50,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. The respondents were asked to rate, on a scale of zero to 10, how likely they would be to recommend their employer to others. Statista then asked respondents to nominate organizations in industries outside their own.
