Published together with our partner, Great Place to Work, the Best Small & Medium Workplaces rankings are based on input from more than 52,000 employees at Great Place to Work-certified companies. Employees completed Great Place’s anonymous Trust Index survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, their assessment of the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees' personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.
Results from the survey are highly reliable, with a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for all. Not only do the majority of their employees experience the company as a great place to work, but this experience is consistent across the organization, regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role, or other personal characteristics. The companies with the highest employee ratings relative to comparable organizations were selected for the list. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.

It’s not about the perks. Sure, it’s nice to have a gym in your offices or, say, free ice cream. But what makes a job meaningful depends on a few key qualities: a sense of mission; trust (from managers) and autonomy (for workers); and a culture of teamwork and communication. That’s what emerges from 52,000 surveys of employees at small and medium-size companies, conducted by our partner, Great Place to Work. Read these rankings for insights on managing and consider this: The revenue growth at the companies on the list averaged three times that of those that were surveyed but didn’t make the cut.
