A spot on Glassdoor's Best Places to Work list is a tremendous achievement. Unlike other workplace awards, our list is entirely based on employee feedback. So, how do you secure a spot for your company next year?
If your company didn't make the cut this year, here are some potential reasons why:
Since Best Places to Work is an annual list, Glassdoor requires a minimum number of reviews posted during the period of eligibility, which ran from November 2, 2015 to October 30, 2016. To help you track reviews shared by your employees unlock your Free Employer Account.
This list takes qualitative and quantitative data into account. We assess the quality of the reviews to identify the companies that truly outshine the rest in the eyes of their employees. If your company has a higher rating than another, has enough reviews to be considered, and meets those requirements during the period of eligibility, the quality of reviews may have been the determining factor. To better understand which workplace attributes are common among employers with high-quality reviews, check out our guide to the DNA of a Best Place to Work.
Part of our proprietary algorithm assesses consistency of the qualitative and quantitative data shared on Glassdoor by employees. Inconsistent data can, in some cases, impact a company's overall rating for awards purposes.
