Teach For America placed No. 88 on Fortune magazine's 2014 "100 Best Companies to Work For" list, the nonprofit announced today. This is the fourth year in a row the education group made the index.
Other companies on the list include Google (No. 1), the Mayo Clinic (No. 53) and Goldman Sachs (No. 45). TFA came in two slots behind Microsoft, but edged out Nordstrom.
"Teach For America's spirited and inclusive culture is the result of our dedicated staff members," Elisa Villanueva Beard and Matt Kramer, co-CEOs of TFA, said in a statement. "This recognition by Fortune highlights our efforts to keep getting better and foster a more collaborative and dynamic workplace."
Fortune compiles the list in partnership with global research and consulting firm the Great Place to Work Institute. TFA was selected from among hundreds of companies participating in the selection process, which includes an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about programs and company practices.
Great Place to Work evaluates applications based on credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
The Great Place to Work Institute also featured TFA in its book "No Excuses: How You Can Turn Any Workplace into a Great One."
TFA is committed to diversity in the workplace as it partners with Hispanic and other communities to expand educational opportunities for children in poverty.
