The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees that were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Employee evaluations also included other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively. One thousand employers – 500 large and 500 midsize – were awarded across 25 industry sectors.
