  • A new ranking of Fortune 500 companies, called the 2023 American Opportunity Index, rates companies based on how well they help employees move into better, higher-paying jobs.
  • Citizens Financial Group and Costco Wholesale stand out in their respective industries for their commitment to career growth and development.

Looking to get ahead in your career? The 2023 American Opportunity Index has ranked Fortune 500 companies based on their ability to promote career growth and development. The index takes into consideration factors such as hiring practices, pay increases, and employee retention rates to determine which companies offer the best opportunities for advancement and higher salaries.

In the banking industry, Citizens Financial Group was identified as one of the top companies for career growth. The company is known for giving opportunities to workers without college degrees or less job experience. On the other hand, Citigroup ranked lower in the index, lacking in hiring practices for individuals without degrees or experience.

Tech companies, such as Microsoft and Meta Platforms, fared well in terms of promoting employees into positions of more authority. However, Amazon, despite being a major player in the tech industry, scored poorly in terms of employee retention.

Among retailers, Costco Wholesale was recognized for its high pay and positive company culture. However, it fell short in terms of racial and gender parity. Home Depot, on the other hand, excelled in terms of hiring practices, promotion opportunities, and retention rates, but lagged behind in terms of pay compared to its competitors.

It is evident from the index that some companies are making conscious efforts to foster career growth, while others still have room for improvement. The ranking provides valuable insights for job seekers looking to avoid dead-end jobs and find employers that prioritize employee development.
