Participating nonprofits had to employ at least 10 Oregon workers (and/or volunteers who worked an average of 20 or more hours per month) at the time of the survey.

For the 2012 survey nearly 5,000 nonprofit workers rated their satisfaction with 169 organizations in 25 workplace qualities — five in each of the following categories:
EMPLOYER BENEFITS SURVEY
Organization representatives answered about 50 questions covering a comprehensive set of benefits including health and wellness, time off, family-friendly policies, work scheduling, incentives, retirement plans and culture.

The benefits survey was also scored on a 100-point scale, accounting for the remaining 1/6 of the overall score, resulting in a total possible score of 600.
