15 Dividend Stock Picks Based on Glassdoor Best Places to Work

Glassdoor is a job aggregator and review site. It’s where current and former employees go to rate their companies, write reviews, and look for jobs.

Every year, Glassdoor publishes its Best Places to Work list. This list is based on the reviews and ratings it collects over the year from current and former employees.

Tell me more.

Unlike other lists, current and former employees are not bombarded with long surveys and forced to complete it. The winners are selected for inclusion based on the feedback provided on the website once it is filtered for quantity, quality, and consistency.

The complete methodology is available for review if you are interested in learning more.

Why I like this list.

According to the Harvard Business Review:

There is a strong statistical link between employee well-being reported on Glassdoor and customer satisfaction among a large sample of some of the largest companies today. A happier workforce is clearly associated with companies’ ability to deliver better customer satisfaction — particularly in industries with the closest contact between workers and customers, including retail, tourism, restaurants, health care, and financial services.

My dividend stock picks.

There are 100 companies on the Glassdoor Best Companies list. Not all the companies on this list are publicly traded companies. Even if they are, they don’t all pay dividends. Out of all the companies that do pay dividends, I am investing in the following 15:
