Top Workplaces USA

What does participation require?

The Top Workplaces USA award is open to all organizations with 150 or more employees in the United States, and that achieve a response rate to the Workplace Survey of 35% or higher.  Currently, the award is open to all industries except those that are primarily regional, such as local real estate agents/brokers, local hotels and K-12 educational institutions.

How will lists be published?

A list of winners for each award will be:

  • Announced in a news release distributed nationwide
  • Featured in promoted social media posts on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook
  • Listed on www.topworkplaces.com.

Plus, each of the 52 media outlets that participate in the program, including The Washington Post, Dallas Morning News, Chicago Tribune and more, will receive advance access to the list of winners for a chance to publish the lists in print and online.

How will lists be determined?

Just as with our regional program, lists will be determined based on quantitative employee feedback and the statements and demographic information that we collect within Workplace Survey. Because we have collected data from more than 22 million surveys at over 66,000 organizations, our benchmark is the most accurate benchmark available. All lists are based solely on employee feedback. There are no subjective elements to the process, making Top Workplaces the most credible, authentic employer recognition program.

What do the Top Workplace USA winners get?

Each winner will receive a high-level survey briefing, plus a Top Workplaces media kit that will provide templates and tools to help promote the recognition. Recognition also includes a profile on topworkplaces.com optimized for sharing on social, career sites, in advertising, and more. If an event is scheduled, each winner will receive a pre-determined number of invites to the virtual event

Can I use this survey for my Top Workplaces survey as well?

Yes. You can issue just one survey that can put you in the running for national recognition, regional recognition, sector recognition, topic-based recognition, and Energage’s patented benchmarking & analysis.

Can I remove statements from the survey?

Because our program uses the same standard survey for all of our Top Workplaces programs, we’re not able to remove any statements.

Should my international employees be included in the survey?

Because the program is looking at the US based employees, we do not require you to include your international employees. However, we can survey all employees within your entire organization.

Will there be a media kit, like for Top Workplaces?

Yes there will be!
