100 Best Companies to Work For Methodology
To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, FORTUNE partners with the Great
Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in
corporate America: 259 firms participated in this year's survey. More than
277,000 employees at those companies responded to a survey created by the
institute, a global research and consulting firm operating in 45 countries
around the world. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of
the institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of
employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their
attitudes about management's credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie.
The other third is based on responses to the institute's Culture Audit, which
includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of
open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal
communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts. After
evaluations are completed, if news about a company comes to light that may
significantly damage employees' faith in management, it may be excluded from
the list. Any company that is at least five years old and has more than 1,000
U.S. employees is eligible. For more information on how to apply, visit:
