Salt River Project (SRP) has been named one of America’s Best Employers by Forbes and Statista. SRP was ranked No. 81 overall among large companies with more than 5,000 employees, up from No. 189 in 2018. The ranking also places SRP first among companies headquartered in Arizona, and fourth among national utilities.

“SRP’s ranking is a testament to the employees who work together each day to provide water and power to our customers,” said Renée Castillo, Senior Director, Customer Strategy Integration at SRP. “As a company, we work to provide our employees with competitive benefits and a supportive environment. Seeing these results – which are ranked by an independent third party surveying employees – means that our incredible team feels recognized.”

This is the second year SRP has appeared as a Forbes Best Employer. The list, which is in its fifth year, ranks companies most liked by its employees and is broken into two categories: one for large companies, and another for midsize companies with 1,000 to 5,000 employees.

The ranking is a collaboration with Statista, an analytics company, which conducts an independent survey of 50,000 employees working in their U.S. locations to generate the list. Surveys are anonymous and ask open-ended questions regarding the employer to rank likeability.

In order to be considered for the list, companies must receive at least 100 recommendations, either indirect or direct. The average amount of recommendations for companies that appear on the list is 150.
