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 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 greatplacetowork.com/100Best.

The retailer of storage solutions and home-keeping hires only about 3% of applicants, but those who make the cut are rewarded with higher-than-average pay and a fun-loving culture, with traditions like “We Love Our Employees Day,” chili cook-offs, and a soap box derby. Every part-time worker has access to health insurance, and based on employee feedback, the company recently lowered the amount workers have to kick in for co-pays and deductibles.
