Forbes’ Largest Employers 2020 – Accounting for COVID-19
If you have an interest in employment with a big firm, take a look at Forbes’ revamped largest 100 employer rating. discussed by Ezequiel Minaya:
“As the pandemic swept through the nation, America’s businesses reevaluated their approach to everything from employees and customers to the greater community. Many shut offices and shifted work online. Some overhauled sick leave and dependent care policies. And some increased pay or gave bonuses. For at least a time, the paramount concern for most corporations was not just profit and the bottom-line.”
“The new Forbes Corporate Responders ranking assesses how well the 100 largest employers among U.S. public companies responded to the public health crisis. As a snapshot in time, we analyzed companies’ policies from mid-March through May 7 across 22 categories. From relaxed attendance policies to community relief funds, on a rising scale of 1 to 5. We then averaged the numbers into an overall composite score. Verizon came out on top with a score of 3.87.”
“These companies are not free of controversies. Some have been criticized for ending policies, such as “hero” pay, too soon. Others are facing lawsuits for wrongful death of workers or allegedly failing to safeguard the health of staff and customers. Perhaps a bigger question is whether the policy changes brought out by COVID-19 will be temporary or have a lasting impact on corporate America. Only time will tell.”
