Methodology

To determine the 2019 Best Workplaces in Technology, Fortune partnered with the people analytics firm, Great Place to Work®, to analyze anonymous survey feedback representing more than 220,000 US employees.

Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Eight-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do. Great Place to Work analyze these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical in their industry and region.

The remaining 15 percent of the rank is based on an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced.

To ensure survey results truly represent all employees, Great Place to Work requires that Trust Index© survey results are accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error or better.

Companies with 10 to 999 people are considered for the small and medium category; companies with 1,000 employees or more are considered for the large category.
