“Now in its fifth year, the Workforce 100 recognizes companies that excelled in HR over the course of the previous year.
The research team created a model to sift through publicly available data on HR performance to separate the best from the rest. To give employees more of a say in the rankings, we asked recruiting and job-review website Glassdoor to provide data on what workers are saying about the companies that made our list. From there, we combined that information with the public data available to create our 2018 Workforce 100 list.” - according to workforce.com
The scores include 7 core areas:
- Workplace culture
- Employee benefits
- Diversity and inclusion
- Employee development and talent management
- Human resources innovation
- Leadership development
- Talent acquisition
The working assumption behind the list is that high performance in these core categories provides a reasonable proxy for overall HR excellence.
