In an industry facing a talent shortage, it's important for top companies with strong cultures to be recognized with awards such as 2016 Best Places to Work in NYC" List to differentiate themselves. In order to be awarded a spot on the list, Horizon Media underwent a rigorous, two-part survey process. The first part (25% of the ranking) consisted of evaluating each nominated organization's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part (75% of the ranking) involved an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
