To identify its lists of the best workplaces, Great Place to Work conducts the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. This year’s survey was sent to more than 88,000 employees at 450 companies. Figures are as of July 2015 and represent full-time and part-time U.S. employees, unless otherwise noted. Annual revenue figures are for the latest fiscal year.

Two-thirds of a company’s 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.
