To determine the final list of companies, the Selling Power's research team analyzed and ranked data across key areas including compensation and benefits, hiring, sales training, sales enablement and diversity and inclusion.
The list encompasses companies of all sizes that are leading the charge in perseverance and determination despite facing the worst inflationary period in decades.
Selling Power magazine founder and CEO Gerhard Gschwandtner said, "What attracts salespeople to work for these leading organizations is their great culture, their commitment to diversity, and their steady support of the sales team by servant leadership that focuses on creating customer value and a meaningful work environment that offers unlimited opportunities to win. These companies aim at a higher level of professionalism and trust, which in turn leads to increased sales and a lower turnover of the sales force."
