How Winners Are Determined

There are multiple Best Places to Work lists to be considered for, depending on your company size and location. In addition to recognizing the top employers across the U.S. this year, we will also be individually recognizing employers within the following tech hubs: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC. Employers that have 100% of their employees working remotely will also be individually recognized.

The rewards your company offers, which are shown in the Perks of Working Here section of your Company Profile, are calculated into a score by our algorithm, which represents 50 percent of your overall consideration of being a winner. Each reward is weighted based on which perks and benefits candidates care about the most.

For compensation, we look at the median percentile for all salaries entered for your company (need to submit five to be eligible for BPTW) and compare that to the rest of the companies in our database. We do not look at individual salaries, nor do we publicly list individual salary information for specific positions at companies.

 

Salary information is fully anonymous and is not tied to your company in any way publicly.

Your Total Employee Headcount and Nearest Market information factor into what lists your company will be considered for. 

 

Your headcount information determines if you will be considered for our Startup, Midsize or Large lists. And your Nearest Market, or Location, information will determine what city lists you will be considered for.

If chosen as a winner, your Company Description and Gallery Image will be shown to candidates as a representation of your company.

Hear From Our Customers

The number one way Built In helped our brand was with Best Places to Work… What I love is that the list is based on algorithms, it’s not pay to play… I can tell people we’re a great place to work. But when a third party uses an algorithm to say the same thing, it adds a lot of credibility.”
