Best Workplaces in Chicago
Published together with Fortune, The Best Workplaces in Chicago ranking is based entirely upon feedback from employees at Great Place to Work–Certified™ companies either headquartered or with major locations in Chicago who completed our Trust Index Employee Survey. Employees anonymously answered questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including everything from the fairness of their company’s promotions, to who has access to information and leadership, the level of support for employees’ personal lives, and the degree of inclusiveness and connection they feel with colleagues. Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. We consider employees’ experiences on 58 questions in total, including an overall assessment of whether the company as a whole is a great place to work. The total score for each company is based entirely upon employee feedback and ranked relative to similarly-sized peers.
