About the Forbes America's Best Employers List Methodology
Now in its third year, the Forbes ranking of America's Best Employers is drawn from an online survey of more than 30,000 employees at companies with at least 1,000 people. The survey was conducted with global digital data collection partners who use innovative technology and proven sampling methodologies to facilitate a deep understanding of consumer opinions and behavior. Participation in the survey was voluntary, and respondents were recruited from thousands of sources to maximize reach and representation. The mix of respondents (gender, age, region, and ethnicity) in the sample represents American employees. Each employee surveyed was asked to rank both his own employer and other employers in the same industry sector.
