About The FORTUNE 100 Best Companies To Work For®

Great Place to Work based its ranking on a data-driven methodology applied to anonymous Trust Index™ survey responses representing the view of more than 4.3 million employees at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations with more than 1,000 employees.

People analytics firm Great Place to Work determined the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For list by conducting America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study, representing more than 4.3 million employees this year.

To be considered, companies submit an application documenting over 200 data points describing their HR programs and practices. Great Place to Work then conducts an anonymous survey of each company’s workforce. Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work.

To ensure surveys truly represent all employees, we require enough people in each organization to respond so that results are accurate to a 95 percent con­fidence level and 5 percent margin of error or better. One part of the total score is based on our evaluation of company programs and policies, while three parts come from our analysis of employee survey data.

We review any anomalies in survey responses, news, and financial performance to ensure there aren’t any extraordinary reasons to believe we couldn’t trust a company’s survey results. Companies need to employ at least 1,000 U.S. employees to be considered for the 100 Best Companies list. Government agencies are not eligible.
