How the Results Were Determined

The Best Places to Work survey process was managed by Best Companies Group (BCG), an independent workplace excellence research firm. The assessment process consisted of two parts. In part one, BCG collected information about each employer’s benefits, policies, practices and other general information. Part two involved a confidential survey of employees, which was used to evaluate workplace experiences and culture. The combined data allowed the experts at BCG to conduct an in-depth analysis and determine the 20 winners.
