Compass
Hello!
Our first annual Best Workplaces for Innovators list honors 50 companies from around the world that do more than just talk the talk. Representing a wide variety of industries—including biotech, consumer packaged goods, financial services, cybersecurity, and engineering—these companies all share a deep commitment to creating cultures where employees at all levels can put new ideas into motion and move the business forward. And they were all able to demonstrate that commitment through compelling applications, vetted by Fast Company in collaboration with Accenture, that documented R&D investment and effective internal programs.  
From corporate giants like Procter & Gamble (with an impressive internal product incubator called GrowthWorks) to scrappy nonprofits like Proximity Designs (a Myanmar-based nonprofit that helps isolated rural farmers increase income), all of these companies offer employees the ultimate perk⁠—the opportunity to make a real difference.
