Who Determines the Top Workplaces? The Methodology Behind The Rankings
The Post determined that there is no better judge of a company than the employees who work there. The publication works with Energage to rank the Washington area’s Top Workplaces. The process is based on a scientific survey of employees who rate their workplace culture. According to Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage, “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization.”
The employee engagement survey of 24 questions gathers responses regarding issues related to workplace culture:
- Alignment: where the company is headed, its values, cooperation, effective meetings
- Coaching: managers care about concerns, are helpful, encourage employee development
- Connection: employees feel appreciated, work is meaningful, working at full potential, clued in to each other
- Engagement: productivity, retention, recruiting
