Surveying employers on important criteria

To develop the list, 20,000 Americans with less than 10 years’ professional experience working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees were surveyed.

The respondents were asked to rate their employers on a variety of criteria, including safety of work environment, competitiveness of compensation, opportunities for advancement, effectiveness of diversity and inclusion efforts and openness to telecommuting.

Respondents were then asked how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others, and to nominate organizations in industries outside their own.
