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.

Scott Scherr, founder and CEO of this cloud human capital management company, is regarded as a hero by employees, all of whom are made stockholders when they join the company. With the price of the stock escalating by more than 1,000% since the end of 2008, many of them have enjoyed the rewards of gains in stock value. Ultimate also has what is arguably the most generous 401(k) plan in the business world: the company matches its employees’ 401(k) contributions at a rate of 40% at every pay period, with no cap on that amount To top it off, the firm continues to pay 100% of the health insurance premium for all employees and their dependents.
