Methodology: How FORTUNE Chose the 100 Best Companies to Work For
FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work® Institute, a global research and consulting firm that operates in 45 countries, and conducts the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. 259 firms participated in this year's survey. More than 277,000 employees from those companies responded to a survey created by the Great Place to Work® Institute. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the result from the institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions about attitudes towards management's credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to a Culture Audit, which includes questions about compensation programs along with open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts.
