How the rankings were created
Employees at each company received a survey of 21 short, multiple-choice questions. The answers were used to assess a company's strength across 10 core qualities of culture.
These scores were combined with the employee Net Promoter Score to create a CultureIQ Score. The companies with the highest CultureIQ Scores became the Top Company Culture list in ranking order.
