Fortune finds two 'best places to work' in Racine

SC Johnson and Son and Johnson Financial Group have both made Fortune magazine's list of the Top 100 best companies to work for.

SCJ, however, slipped from 27th last year to 81st this year. Johnson Financial improved its position, rising from 37th to 25th.

What makes SCJ so great? The magazine writes: "In the midst of the financial crisis CEO Fisk Johnson sent a cheer-up card to every employee announcing a two-day extension of the annual holiday break." This is the seventh year in a row that SCJ has made the list.

Fortune also credited SCJ for competitive salaries, the lowest turnover and the JMBA Fitness Center. "What makes this recognition so special is that it's based on the opinions of the people who work here," said SC Johnson Chairman and CEO Fisk Johnson. "We're committed to ensuring a culture of respect, fairness, integrity and trust, and when the people of SC Johnson say we're succeeding -- that is incredibly inspiring and gratifying."

As for Johnson Financial, Fortune wrote: "Employees at the 63 locations of this financial services company were assured their jobs were safe and kept in the loop about the industry upheaval via town halls and voicemails from the CEO."
