The Container Store has announced its number 16 ranking on Fortune magazine’s annual list of “100 Best Companies to Work For.” The announcement marks 14 consecutive years for the retailer on the employer of choice list.

If employees are ecstatic, then customers are ecstatic and so are all of our other stakeholders,” said Kip Tindell, chairman and CEO of The Container Store.
“We’re thrilled to continue to operate our business in the manner of Conscious Capitalism— putting a purpose before profits and never forgetting what got us here in the first place— our devotion to great people and a happy workplace," he added.
