Fortune partners annually with Great Place to Work® to conduct the most
extensive employee survey in corporate America to identify the 100 Best
Companies to Work For ®. Two-thirds of a company's survey score is based
on the results of the Trust Index© Employee Survey, which is sent to a
random sample of employees from each company. This survey asks questions
related to employees' attitudes about management's credibility, overall
job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses
to the Culture Audit©, which includes detailed questionnaires about pay
and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring
practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition
programs and diversity efforts.
