100 Best Companies to Work For

See our methodology and credits



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 register for the 100 Best Companies to Work For list, which allows participation in all our Best Workplaces lists, including Millennials, Women, Diversity, and over a dozen additional lists, go to

Riot Games

Last year's Rank: 13

Riot Games, maker of the popular video game League of Legends, welcomes new Rioters not with paperwork, but with “Denewbification”: an intensive immersion that starts with–what else?–a session of gaming. If new hires decide Riot’s not a fit before the end of their first 60 days, they will be offered up to 10% of their annual salary (up to $25,000) as an incentive to quit. As part of an open paid-time-off policy, the company places no limit on vacation or sick days spent outside of the office. It’s up to Rioters to design what kind of schedule works for them, and to stay home when they’re not feeling well. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
