For the 31st year, Seattle Business magazine is looking for the top companies in Washington that set the standard for work environment, rewards & recognition, benefits, communications, responsibility & decision-making, executive leadership for its annual100 Best Companies to Work For program of 2020. This is the list that all HR executives and company presidents want to be on because it is their own people that put them there from anonymous employee surveys developed from 25+ years of market research.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Submit your company to be in the running. The nomination period is from September - December.
- In the beginning of 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 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, if your company made the list, your HR contact will be contacted directly to announce the exciting news!
- All companies that make the list will be invited to an awards banquet 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.
“A common theme across all these successful companies is transparent, communicative leadership and responsiveness to employee concerns,” said Seattle Business magazine Editor in Chief Rob Smith. “A positive company culture drives innovation and profit, boosts productivity, reduces turnover and creates employee enthusiasm.”
