The confidential employer survey consists of 57 questions, providing a comprehensive analysis of company benefits policies. Answers from the first 41 questions count for 1/6 of a participating company's overall 100 Best Companies score. The 15 Sustainable Practices questions count for 1/3 of a company's 100 Best Green Companies score. There is one open-ended question for additional comments.
The survey is divided into six sections: Work Environment; Management & Communications; Decision-making & Trust; Career Development and Learning; Benefits & Compensation; and Sustainable Practices (used to determine the 100 Best Green Companies list). Within each section are 5 workplace qualities (10 in Sustainable Practices) on which employees rate satisfaction and importance. There is also an optional demographic section and two open-ended questions asking what employees like about their workplace and what they would like improved.
The survey is divided into five sections with a total of 25 statements, 10 Sustainable Practices statements for our 100 Best Green Companies survey, an optional demographic section and two open-ended questions. This year Oregon volunteers who work at least 20 hours per month can take the survey.
The survey consists of 35 statements divided into six workplace categories.Employees rate the statements in terms of satisfaction and importance. This year, volunteers working at least 20 hours per month may also participate in the survey, if the organization chooses to include them.
A nonprofit representative familiar with your organization’s employment and benefits policies, as well as sustainable practices, should complete the benefits (or employer) survey. It takes about 30 minutes.
