The Best Workplaces in Diversity offer the very best workplace experiences according to the diverse employees who work there. To determine the list, Great Place to Work® got feedback from 442,624 employees on more than 50 survey questions anonymously rating their employers.
For the purposes of this list, diverse employees were anyone who identified as a racial/ethnic minority, female, LGBTQ, disabled, or who was born in 1964 or earlier. We compared the experiences these employees reported to that of their colleagues, focusing on areas that the data revealed the most differentiation in their daily workplace experience. We also considered the degree of representation in the organization.
For example, this analysis considered:
Does being a diverse employee affect the extent to which employees are supported by their organizations? Do they feel fairly considered for meaningful opportunities to advance? Do they have access to information and leaders? Do they feel genuinely included in the team? Does this vary according to who you are or what job you perform for the organization?
Do executives earn employees confidence and provide opportunities to innovate and contribute to the organization's success across the whole workforce@f0
How many diverse employees does the organization employ@f0 What is the composition of its management and executive groups.
How does the workplace compare on these factors to others of a similar size, region or industry@f0
Rankings were driven by diverse employees feedback. To be considered, companies had to meet the Great Place to Work-Certified standard, have at least 50 employees, and their survey results needed at least a 95% confidence level, and a 5% margin of error or better.
