For the seventh time at No. 1, Google/Alphabet makes all other companies resolute at reaching for No. 2 on Fortune’s “Best Places to Work” list.

On the list for the past decade, Google continues to show other companies how to major in retention, work productivity, and admiration. It starts with the workers, not the work.

If you put your employees in a place that makes them regret going home, odds are they will work longer. So, Google flipped the script on everyone and built a temple (in any location where they have an office) dedicated to fun.

One Googler shared an experience with Fortune like this:

“The company culture truly makes workers feel they’re valued and respected as a human being, not as a cog in a machine. The perks are phenomenal. From three prepared organic meals a day to unlimited snacks, artisan coffee and tea to free personal-fitness classes, health clinics, on-site oil changes, haircuts, spa truck, bike-repair truck, nap pods, free on-site laundry rooms, and subsidized wash and fold. The list is endless.”

For the most dynamic PR and inspiration, we encourage you to read this review and dream how you can do the same at your agency. We double dog dare you to look at these pictures too.
