Published together with our partner, Fortune, The Best Workplaces for African Americans ranking is based upon feedback from more than 30,000 African-American employees at Great Place to WorkCertified companies who completed our Trust Index© Employee Survey. Employees answered 58 questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, considering everything from how comfortable they are being themselves; the degree of favoritism or insider politics they observe in the workplace; the fairness of promotions; the feeling of honest connection with coworkers; their access to senior leadership; and who receives information and professional development and who doesnt.

To determine the winners, Great Place to Work analyzed how positively African-American employees report experiencing their workplace overall, paying special attention to an index of factors where African Americans tend to have a less positive experience than their colleagues. Rankings take into account how favorably African-American employees experience their workplace relative to colleagues who are not African-American, who were also surveyed; as well as the degree of representation minorities enjoy within the workforce as a whole, management and executive roles. Organizations needed to have at least 100 African-American employees to be considered and are compared to peers of a similar size.
