Alight named to Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list in 2024

By Michael Rogers, Chief Human Resources Officer, Alight

At Alight, our commitment to employee wellbeing is not just a strategy— it's our promise. 

As we celebrate this milestone, we remain focused on our own journey of progress and transformation, ensuring that every Alight colleague feels supported, valued and empowered to thrive.

At Alight, we help some of the world’s biggest employers effectively answer the question, “How healthy and financially secure are my employees?” And, for us to succeed at helping our clients, we must ask ourselves this very same question about our own people.

We believe that our clients' lives cannot be improved without first enriching the wellbeing of our own colleagues. Thus, we strive to create an environment where everyone feels seen, heard and valued. 

This process reinforces our dedication to fostering an enriching employee experience, with a steadfast focus on enhancing the wellbeing of our own employees, which is woven into the fabric of our organizational culture.

Our people are the heartbeat of our organization. Their dedication fuels our ability to deliver innovative solutions and drive positive outcomes for the employers and employees we serve. As a global leader in HR solutions, Alight empowers millions of workers worldwide to lead healthier, more financially secure lives. 

As a result of this commitment to our workforce, Alight has been named one of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® in 2024 by Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine. This prestigious recognition marks our inaugural appearance on this esteemed list, affirming our conviction that to help our clients create a more healthy and financially secure workforce, we must help our own people do the same.

We firmly believe that investing in the wellbeing of our colleagues is an investment in the long-term success of our organization. Our employee wellbeing strategy, "caring for the whole person," revolves around four pillars: mind, body, wallet and life. Through our proprietary Alight Worklife® platform, our colleagues worldwide access regional benefits tailored to these pillars.

As we celebrate this significant milestone, we acknowledge that our journey is far from over. We remain dedicated to continuing our theme of progression, ensuring that our employees thrive both personally and professionally. Together, we will continue to redefine the future of employee wellbeing, supporting organizations worldwide in connecting the dots between people, work and life.

Our journey with Great Place to Work has been one of continuous progress, with year-on-year improvement for our six years of certification. Additionally, we are honored to have been recognized as a Best Place to Work in ChicagoTM for the past three consecutive years.

Achieving recognition as one of Fortune's 100 Best Places to Work is a journey that has been years in the making. As CHROs at other companies aspire to attain similar recognitions, it's imperative to prioritize active listening to employees. Understanding your peoples’ needs and concerns fosters a culture of trust and inclusivity, laying the groundwork for a supportive work environment. Moreover, focusing on organizational strengths can set companies apart. For example, Alight's emphasis on wellbeing initiatives has contributed to our success. 

Additionally, setting audacious goals and relentlessly pursuing them is key. By following these principles, CHROs can pave the way for their organizations to be recognized as top employers, fostering a culture where employees thrive and flourish. Alight's achievement didn't happen overnight; it was four years in the making, highlighting the importance of perseverance and sustained effort. CHROs looking to highlight their own organization’s success should adopt a long-term perspective, continuously striving for improvement while staying attuned to their employees' needs and aspirations.

This recognition is a testament to the exceptional contributions of our people. We are immensely proud of what we have achieved together and excited about the future as we strive to make a real difference in the lives of our clients and employees alike.
