10 Best Global Companies to Work For


What makes for a great workplace? Quality of life, access to senior managers, and clear career paths were among the attributes cited by workers in a “World’s Best Multinational Workplaces” survey from consultancy Great Place to Work. To be considered, companies must employ at least 5,000 people worldwide, with no less than 40% of them working outside of the home country. These are organizations that demonstrate a focus on improving the work and life experiences for the rank-and-file, and finding innovative ways to make good things happen. "This list recognizes global companies that have demonstrated a truly serious commitment to creating workplaces that foster trust, pride and camaraderie amongst their employees," said Jose Tolovi Jr., global CEO of Great Place to Work. The research is based on surveys in which more than 2.5 million workers took part. The top 25 can be found here; this slideshow includes the top ten companies, along with some perks from their global locations.

  7. شركة تنظيف كنب بالمدينة المنورة
    لقد تحدثنا مراراً وتكراراً عن أهمية وجود الكنب وعن كيفية التعامل معها فحين تعرض الكنب لبعض من الاتساخ، ولكن معظم ربات المنازل يكونوا غير قادرين على القيام بمهة التنظيف بأنفسهم مما يفضل البعض منهم الاستعانة بواحدة مثل شركتنا شركة تنظيف كنب بالمدينة المنورة، التي تتعامل مع الكنب بطريقة خاصة جداً لأن الكنب من قطع الأثاث ذات الأهمية الكبير في كثير من الأماكن فلا يشترط وجود الكنب بالمنازل والشقق والفلل والقصور فقط بل أنه يتواجد بالفنادق والنوادي والمكاتب والشركات، وهذا يجعل الكنب يتعرض للكثير من الأمور.
    ومن هنا يأتي دور شركة تنظيف كنب بالبخار بالمدينة المنورة لأنها المكان الوحيد الذي سوف يساعدكَ بأن تحصل على تنظيف متكامل للكنب ويكون خالي من الأتربة والبقع الصعبة والحشرات وخلافه.
