Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they create a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.

“The Cheesecake Factory is honored to be named on the PEOPLE Companies that Care list for the second time,” said David Overton, Founder, Chairman and CEO of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated. “Since opening our first restaurant in Beverly Hills in 1978, we have strived to create a very special company with a culture of doing the right thing and giving back to our communities. This award is a wonderful acknowledgment of the environment we have worked to create with our 45,000 staff members.”
