The pandemic has definitely changed work culture in the US over the past year, but regardless of whether you’re working from home in your pajamas or braving the real world, some employers are heavily sought to work for.

Now that the disastrous year of 2020 is finally in the rearview mirror, positively going forward in the new year might even include looking for a new job.

Luckily for you, Glassdoor has released the winners of its annual employees’ choice awards, which recognizes the 100 best places to work in the US in 2021. Five of these hundred are based in Washington.

Unlike other workplace awards, winners are determined based on feedback by those who know a company best — the employees.

This year’s ranking features a priority on health and safety, as well as the usual big tech companies, startups, banks, service providers, and fashion.

Top industries included technology with 28 companies, retail with 10 companies, travel and tourism with nine, and healthcare with 8.

Here are the five Washington companies to claim their spots in the top 100:
