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.

Houston Methodist
Private, Non-Profit

Courtesy of Houston Methodist

Known for its friendly work environment, leaders at this large hospital system make rounds in the middle of the night to keep in touch with staff. And when the organization recently acquired two hospitals with more than 1,100 employees, CEO Dr. Marc Boom conducted multiple town hall meetings and provided an email address for the new employees to ask questions. The response time was less than 30 minutes each for the hundreds of questions received.
