American Water, the largest regulated water and wastewater utility company in the U.S., has been ranked No. 1 in the utilities industry on Forbes America’s Best Large Employers 2024 list. The ranking is based on an independent survey of employees.

Susan Hardwick, president and chief executive officer, American Water. “We are extremely fortunate to have such an engaged, talented and diverse workforce, focused on building a better workplace where our people can thrive.”

Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey more than 170,000 U.S.-based employees at companies with at least 1,000 employees. Companies with more than 5,000 employees were eligible for the category of large employers. Survey respondents were asked if they would recommend their employer to others and given the chance to rate other employers in their respective industries. All survey responses were tallied and weighted to produce a score for each company.
