DALLAS-The Container Store jumped to number 16 on Fortune Magazine's 2013 annual list, 100 Best Companies to Work For, which was revealed this morning on Fortune's iPad application. This year marks the 14th consecutive year for the retailer to make the list. Last year it was number 22.
"Sustaining a position on this employer of choice list is truly one of our proudest accomplishments," said Kip Tindell, Chairman and CEO of The Container Store in a statement. "And to go up on the list this year is truly fantastic. Our employees are our #1 priority. If employees are ecstatic then customers are ecstatic and so are all of our other stakeholders--vendors, community partners, shareholders--everyone. 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."
