Since the holiday season is just around the corner, Google gives out holiday bonuses and raises to its hardworking employees. This maybe the reason why the company was billed as one of the best employers in the world.

Now it is clear why Google topped Fortune’s list of the best companies to work for. The search engine company gave their employees a salary increase of more than 10% and a $1,000 holiday bonus. The source also noted that Google will pay for the taxes as well as give employees salary appraisals equivalent to their target bonuses for the year.

A memo form the CEO Eric Schmidt of Google confirmed this.

“We’ve heard from your feedback on Googlegeist and other surveys that salary is more important to you than any other component of pay (i.e., bonus and equity).
