SAS Culture Continually Creates One of the World's Best Workplaces

Workplace Environment Fuels Innovation, Great Software and Earns SAS No. 2 World Ranking

CARY, NC--(Marketwired - October 23, 2014) - Business analytics leader SAS remains in the top 25 of the World's Best Multinational Workplaces list from Great Place to Work, claiming the No. 2 spot for the second year in a row. It's the fourth year SAS has been on the list -- always in the top two spots -- underscoring the company's continued focus on creating a global work environment that inspires and energizes employees.

"Our employees are creating life-altering software solutions that have a global impact, and our culture motivates them to be more creative and productive. Because we eliminate unnecessary distractions and help relieve everyday stresses, our employees are happier, healthier and proud of the difference their work makes," said SAS CEO Jim Goodnight.

Last year, SAS ranked No. 2 on the World's Best Multinational Workplaces list and ranked No. 2 on the US list in 2013 and 2014. So far this year, SAS offices in Greece, the Netherlands and Poland have been ranked No. 1. SAS has also been among the top workplaces in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Finland, France, Germany, Mexico, Portugal and the United Kingdom. In addition, it has been ranked No. 4 as a great place to work in Europe. The Great Place to Work Institute has recognized SAS many times since the organization was founded to identify companies that have created great workplaces.

According to Maged Tawfik, a SAS Research Statistician Developer: "The SAS culture relieves employees of a great deal of anxiety and worry, enabling them to focus more clearly on their productive tasks."

To be eligible, companies must appear on five or more national Great Place to Work lists in the past year and have more than 5,000 employees worldwide, with at least 40 percent working outside the company's home country. Companies on the World's Best Multinational Workplaces list are rated by their employees to be among the best companies, and have excellent HR policies and practices that support a culture of trust.
