Methodology

To identify the 100 Best Companies to Work For, each year FORTUNE partners
with Great Place to Work to conduct the most extensive employee survey
in corporate America.

Two-thirds of a company’s survey score is based on the results of the
Trust Index Employee Survey, which is sent to a random sample of
employees from each company. This survey asks questions related to
employees’ attitudes about management’s credibility, overall job
satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to
the 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.
