The rankings in the Top Work Places are based on survey information collected by Workplace Dynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. 60 finalists were named out of the 1,200 asked to participate, including 10 large companies, 15 midsize companies and 35 small companies. The rankings were determined after surveys were submitted by employees. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses about company leadership, compensation and training, diversity/inclusion, career development, family-friendly flexibility and values and ethics. Private companies and non-profits as well as publicly held businesses were included in the analysis.
