Seattle Business magazine's 100 Best Companies to Work For program salutes Washington companies that foster great workplaces. For the upcoming 31st annual 100 Best Companies to Work For awards program, Seattle Business magazine is looking for the companies in Washington that set the standard for work environment, rewards and recognition, benefits, communications, responsibility and decision-making, and executive leadership. This is the list that all HR executives and company presidents want to be on because it is generated from feedback from their own employees.
The selection process for the 100 Best list is based on the anonymous responses to employee-survey questions developed from 25-plus years of market research. In February 2020, qualifying companies that have filled out the online nomination form (see below) will be sent instructions for administering the workplace surveys to all in-state, full-time employees. Your average score from these surveys will determine if you make the 100 Best Companies To Work For list.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- 1. Submit your company to be in the running. The nomination period is from September 2019 through January 22, 2020.
- In February, your HR contact will receive an email from our survey provider Fieldwork Webwork. This email will provide the survey which the HR contact at your company will be responsible for sending to all of your FULL-TIME WASHINGTON STATE EMPLOYEES ONLY.
IMPORTANT: Please note that there is an employee participation requirement in order to qualify:
Small Companies (15-49 full-time WA employees) = 75% participation
Midsize Companies (50-150 full-time WA employees) = 50% participation
Large Companies (150+ full-time WA employees) = 25% participation
In May 2020, if your company made the list, your HR representative will be contacted directly and informed of the exciting news! All companies that make the list will be invited to an awards banquet to be held in June 2020, where Washington's 100 Best Companies to Work For will be announced in real-time. Winners will be featured in the July edition of Seattle Business magazine.
To nominate a company, fill out the nomination form below. Please note: To be eligible, companies must have at least 15 full-time Washington state employees.
