"At the core of this competition is an employee survey; this is central to the value of the award and a big part of what makes companies so proud to receive it. It is the employees that decide which companies are recognized on the list. For over 30 years, Great Place to Work has used this rigorous approach to identify and build high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures. These organizations have demonstrated that a focused and systematic investment in culture will pay significant and sustained dividends." Nancy Fonseca, Sr. VP
