This part of the process was worth 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth 75% of the total evaluation. Best Companies Group managed the survey process in New York and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
