Google's "Bureaucracy Busters" program was designed to cut down on internal red tape and make administrative processes more efficient. Instead of creating a committee of senior leaders to conduct an internal review of various processes and make recommendations, CFO Patrick Pinchette asked all employees to post their bureaucracy-cutting suggestions on an internal site and vote on the ones they found most promising. Ultimately, close to 4,500 Google employees voted on nearly 1,200 employee-generated ideas. This year, Google has begun implementing changes, which range from improving their internal expense report system to adding more maps of buildings around their campuses. Nine of the top 10 suggested improvements have been enacted, with the tenth currently in progress.

The 25 companies listed come from Great Place to Work's 2013 World's Best Multinational Workplaces. These companies were selected from a pool of 1,000 corporations that participated in the organization's surveys. These companies were required to have appeared on at least five of Great Place to Work's national Best Workplaces lists, have at least 5,000 employees worldwide, and have at least 40% (or 5,000 employees) of their workforce based outside the company's home country
