Great Place to Work ® (GPTW) is a global research and consulting firm whose mission is to build a better society by helping companies transform their workplaces. All of the organizations on this list were assessed using an employee survey, called the Trust Index © developed by Great place to Work.

This is part of the world's largest annual workplace study, which culminates in a series of national lists in almost 50 countries, including the study's flagship list of 100 Best companies published annually in Fortune magazine. Globally, this survey represents the voices of 11 million employees, including approximately 300,000 from Canada alone. It's what makes this study so credible: the primary determinant used in selecting winners is an employee survey. There's only one way to get on this list - and that's if your employees put you there.
