Published together with our partner, Fortune, the Best Workplaces for Giving Back rankings are based on feedback from more than 357,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified™ organizations. Employees completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering a detailed questionnaire that includes questions about how proud they are of their impact on the community, the difference they feel they make, and whether their work has special meaning. Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less.

To select the list, Great Place to Work considers organizations’ policies regarding paid time off for volunteering and the extent to which they contribute generously to community and charitable causes through corporate donations and employee fund-matching programs. Final rankings are primarily based on employees' own feedback on over 50 survey questions, with special emphasis on their connection to the organization’s community impact. Rankings reward organizations where not only the majority of their employees are proud of their community involvement, but these experiences are widely shared within the organization, regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role or other personal characteristics. Results take into account the complexity of the employee population and performance relative to peers.
