Forbes teamed with market research company Statista to identify the companies most liked by employees for its annual ranking of America’s best employers. The employers were selected based on an independent survey. Around 50,000 employees in 25 different industries working for companies with at least 1,000 employed in their U.S. locations were asked open-ended questions regarding their employer. The evaluation was based on direct recommendations, where employees were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own organizations, as well as indirect recommendations, where participants were asked to evaluate other companies in their respective industries.
