Forbes names Galp as one of the best companies in the world to work for

Galp was selected by the prestigious Forbes magazine as one of the best companies in the world to work for, in a survey conducted by Statista, in parallel with the Forbes Global 2000 ranking of the world's largest companies.

Company selection involved the collection of more than 360 thousand recommendations of companies as employers through macro statistical collection methods and regionally-based surveys. The Forbes list is headed by Alphabet, the parent company of Google, immediately followed by Microsoft and only includes two Portuguese companies, Galp and Jerónimo Martins. The list is main-ly composed of North American companies, including six in the Top 10: Apple, Noble Energy, Williams and IBM, in addition to those already mentioned - Alphabet and Microsoft.
