Top 10 Places to Work and Cultivate Six Sigma Careers
In its second year, the iSixSigma Best Places to Work™ poll was conducted. Both iSixSigma.com and iSixSigma Magazine sponsored the list, which received more than 40 applicant companies from all over the world. Each company applying for consideration has to fill out a two-part survey online – senior Six Sigma leadership submitted answers to an employee survey, and full-time Six Sigma personnel have to submit answers to an employee survey.
The rankings process was simple, the scores from both surveys were totaled and the companies were ranked 1 through 10 as a result. The survey scores were weighted, the greatest consideration was given to the employee survey, which had five categories ranging from: job satisfaction to compensation. Job satisfaction was the category in the employee survey that was given the most weight, because that is what employees said was the most important factor to them when it comes to where they work.
The winning companies for fostering Six Sigma careers “demonstrated an even higher commitment to fostering a supportive culture for Six Sigma professionals to thrive. Overall scores this year were higher than last in each category,” said Michael Marx, research manager of iSixSigma.com and iSixSigma Magazine.
The winners of the iSixSigma Best Places to Work™ poll were:
- Cardinal Health Inc.
- Computacenter AG & Co. oHG
- Ecolab Inc.
- McKesson Corp.
- Merck & Co. Inc.
- Pfizer Inc.
- Piramal Healthcare Ltd.
- Starwood Hotels, North America Operation
- Vought Aircraft Industries Inc.
- Xerox Corp.
Also important to note, Marx pointed out how well these companies have performed “shining through as exemplary places for Six Sigma professionals to work, despite rough economic conditions.”
