Seattle Business Magazine works with research firm Fieldwork Webwork to conduct confidential employee surveys to create the list. Responses are ranked across 10 categories: benefits, communication, corporate culture, hiring/retention, executive leadership, performance standards, responsibility/decision making, rewards/recognition, training/education and workplace environment.
According to the Seattle Business Magazine website, companies are rated "on the basis of confidential employee surveys weighted against the level of employee participation. If a company has high scores in each of our categories but only a small percentage of their employees responded, it won’t do as well as a company that scored well and had a higher rate of participation.”
