All the nominated companies face two tests: a confidential survey of their employees, which accounts for 75% of each company’s score, and an extensive questionnaire on company benefits and policies.

The confidential survey of employees is the primary element. People speak honestly to the Best Companies Group about what they like about their workplace and what they detest. If you built a great workplace, the answers are reassuring; if your employees are unhappy and either critical or apathetic, they will say so when given confidentiality. If you have lots of engaged employees, you have a Best Place to Work.

What does this mean for a constantly changing world? It means keep your organization innovating, pivoting, and regrouping but always remember that much of what people want from their working lives remains constant and easy to understand.
