How is the list determined?
Companies must complete a two-part process to be considered for inclusion on the list. The first part consists of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics and is worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consists of an employee survey to measure the employee experience and is worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determine the top companies and which companies are included on the list. Best Companies Group (BCG) manages the overall registration and survey process and also analyzes the data and uses our expertise to determine the final rankings.
How many companies participate in this program each year?
Best Companies Group has very high confidentiality standards in place to protect companies that don’t make the list. We never release the number of participants in any of our programs, for any reason.
What happens if we don’t make the list?
In the event that you enter the program, but do not make the list, only you will receive notification of that result. We will not release the names of organizations that do not make the list. You will still receive your Employee Feedback Report, and will then have the opportunity to focus on areas to improve your organization and potentially improve your standing the next year. We believe that all workplaces can be great, if energy is spent listening to employees and taking their feedback to heart.
Why should I choose this survey over other “Best Place to Work” programs?
We know the ins-and-outs of employee surveying:
- BCG has spent more than a decade focused solely on survey administration and data-reporting services.
- Our team of friendly professionals has a strong track record of delivering exceptional, one-on-one customer service.
- We’ve spent years developing credible survey tools and valuable and actionable response data reports.
- We conduct annual surveys for thousands of employers all over the United States and internationally, resulting in a robust database of employee response feedback and trends in workplace benefits for benchmarking and comparative analysis.
Plus, we offer a two-part survey process. We collect data from both the employer and employee and use both data sets to determine the best workplaces.
