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. To nominate your company for the 2016 list, go to greatplacetowork.com/learn-what-it-takes

Food giant knows about talent retention. Turnover of full-time employees is just 3 percent annually and more than half of its workers have been on the job for 10 years and 3,500 staffers have more than two decades of service. How? The company promotes its own: 80 percent of managers come from within. And pride runs high. “My legacy at General Mills is helping modernize very iconic brands that I loved as a kid,” says one employee.
