The “20 Best Book Publishing Companies to Work For” Announced
Book Business has released the results of its first annual “20 Best Book Publishing Companies to Work For” study in this month’s issue of the magazine. The study, conducted in cooperation with Accelara Publishing Research, ranked New York-based Random House Inc. as the No. 1 book publishing company to work for, with an overall rating of 96.5 out of 100. In addition to the overall rating, companies also received scores in individual categories, including Satisfying High-Performance Company, Fair & Open Work Environment, and Personal Benefits.
Random House, the world’s largest English-language trade book publisher, was lauded by its employees for its staff autonomy, benefits package, focus on work-life balance and position in the marketplace, among others. Rounding out the top five were Business 21 Publishing LLC, Rodale Inc., Meredith Corp. and the State University of New York Press.
“The study was a major undertaking, but one that we felt would have great benefits for the industry,” says Noelle Skodzinski, Book Business Editor in Chief. “We had an amazing response this year, and it was really competitive. The companies that made the top 20 list truly excel in certain areas, primarily in showing respect and support for their employees and the need for balance between their employees’ work and personal lives. The study will be a great tool for publishing executives looking for great places to work, as well as for management at companies looking to improve employee morale.”
