To determine the 2020 Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production list, Fortune partnered with the people analytics firm Great Place to Work® to analyze anonymous survey feedback representing more than160,000 US employees in the Manufacturing & Production industry.

Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™.

Eighty-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 analyzes these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical relative to their peers in the industry.

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.
