The Forbes ranking was conducted from an online survey of over 20,000 American workers at large U.S. companies, nonprofit institutions such as hospitals, government agencies, and U.S. divisions of multinationals, where they were asked their opinions on their employers and others in their industry. Forbes partnered with Statista to evaluate the data and identified 3,500 employers that had a statistically relevant result. From that pool, the top 500 companies made the list and were placed into 27 industry categories, including retail and wholesale, education, and banking and financial services.
