Employer benefits survey

The employee survey counts for 5/6 of a participating company’s 100 Best Companies score. For each company, the average employee rating is calculated in each of the first five categories of the survey on a scale of 0-100. The benefits survey is 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. Satisfaction and Importance ratings from the final Sustainable Practices count for 2/3 of the 100 Best Green Cos. score, with questions from the Employer survey counting for the remaining 1/3.
The 2014 100 Best Companies are composed of the Top 33 Large, Top 34 Medium and Top 33 Small Companies based on the scoring formula above. The 2014 100 Best Green Companies lists the Top 100 participating companies and nonprofits based on employee satisfaction and importance, and employer benefits survey answers.
