Corporate 100
Illustration of bees
2023 Corporate 100
Like a honeybee returning to a hive and waggling her body to report a tasty food source, Alaska Business returns with the dance of the Corporate 100, sorting employers by their in-state workforce totals. For companies that report the same number of Alaska employees, the tie is broken in favor of the one with more workers worldwide. If those numbers are the same—for example, Sourdough Express and Colville—the ranking defers to seniority (and few Alaska companies still operating today are as senior as Sourdough Express).

In the interest of completeness, this section tallies non-business employers in “Government, Inc.” using publicly available figures rather than responses to an Alaska Business survey. Flip to this month’s Alaska Trends for further examination of the overall Corporate 100 picture.

Articles in this special section cooperate, like sisters in a hive, for a broader view of the labor component of production. “Work Matters for Everyone” digs into state task force recommendations to integrate workers with disabilities. As diversity, equity, and inclusion principles guide more and more workplaces, DEI has evolved into what human resources professionals call DEIB; “Don’t Dream It, B It” explains that fourth letter. “Don’t Wait to Work on Retention” has advice for managers to soothe feelings of burnout, and “International Hiring” details the H-2B and J-1 visas for temporary foreign workers, which is one tool for solving a labor shortage.

Outside of the special section, “Working for Your Employees” asks Providence Alaska what keeps the hospital network at the top of the Corporate 100, and 3-Tier Alaska CEO Nick Ringstad shares his “Recruit and Retain” tips. And don’t miss columns by Woodrie Burich and Sean Dewalt on keeping workplaces happy and healthy, a topic further explored in “Preparing for the Unexpected,” which is about occupational and survival training.
