Sun Named one of the Best Places to Work in California!

Congratulations Sun! By providing employees with great benefits and an inclusive work environment that supports professional and personal development, you are a Top 20 Best Place to Work in California.


On Thursday night, the Employer’s Group honored Sun and 19 other California companies at an awards ceremony in Southern California. The Employers Group is the preeminent human resources expert and advocate serving California employers.


Sun’s ranking was based on the blind scoring of more than 400 companies’ responses to a survey of employers and employees in nine categories, including: work-life balance, pay, benefits, training and advancement opportunities, diversity programs, turnover, perks, employee voice and workplace culture, and community involvement.


The Employers Group believes that a best workplace has a balance between the exceptional and the ordinary, addressing the needs of their employees and treating their customers with respect.  At Sun Microsystems, the employees are the company’s number one asset.  Sun employees represent a variety of perspectives, and their innovative and enterprising spirit drives everything at the company. 


Congratulations to all of us!
