Published together with our partner, Fortune, The Best Workplaces for Latinos ranking is based upon feedback from more than 31,000 Latino employees at Great Place to Work–Certified 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 doesn’t.
To determine the winners, Great Place to Work analyzed how positively Latino employees report experiencing their workplace overall, paying special attention to an index of factors where Latinos tend to have a less positive experience than their colleagues. Rankings take into account how favorably Latino employees experience their workplace relative to their non-Latino colleagues, 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 Latino employees to be considered and are compared to peers of a similar size.
