About the Forbes America’s Best Employers List Methodology

This survey was independently conducted through global digital data
collection partners and recruited respondents from thousands of sources
to maximize reach and representation. Participation was voluntary and
anonymous. In addition to detailed questions about working conditions,
employees were asked to determine how likely they were to recommend
their employer to someone else, as well as their feelings about other
employers in their respective industries. The mix of respondents
(gender, age, region, and ethnicity) in the sample represents American
employees. In total, 1,000 employers have been awarded with 500 being
large (over 5,000 employees) and 500 being mid-size.
