| FROM THE PRINT EDITION |
 
 

From spectacular insurance benefits to inclusive workplace culture to generous work/life balance, the 100 Best Companies to Work For show how it’s done, year in and year out. The 15 firms profiled, in the estimation of our panel of judges, rose to the top of the 100 this year. (Find a complete PDF listing of the 100 Best Companies to Work For and clickable links to each category below.) The judges’ conclusions were based in part on data submitted anonymously by thousands of employees of the participating businesses. The research firm Fieldwork Webwork used the detailed responses to determine each company’s score in 12 categories, including such vital areas as communication, executive leadership, corporate culture and workplace environment.
For judging purposes, nominated companies were separated into five classifications: small firms (30 or fewer employees), midsize (31 to 100 employees), large (more than 100 employees), nonprofits and firms headquartered outside Washington. Congratulations to the Seattle Business magazine 100 best Companies to Work For of 2013!

The results you see here are based on confidential employee surveys as well as a company’s level of employee participation. For example, if a company scores well in the 10 categories described below but has low employee participation, it doesn’t do as well in the rankings as a company with similar scores and a much better participation rate.

The research firm Fieldwork Webwork compiles and ranks the detailed responses of thousands of employees who rate their firms anonymously in these categories: benefits, communication, corporate culture, hiring/retention, executive leadership, performance standards, responsibility/decision making, rewards/recognition, training/education and workplace environment.
