About Top Workplaces
To select the Top Workplaces, a third-party company, WorkplaceDynamics, conducts a 24-question survey among the employees of each participating company, covering topics such as training, work/life balance, company values and leadership, employee appreciation, compensation, retention, and motivation. Upon completion of the surveys, employers are categorized by size (50-149 employees, 150-399 employees, and above 400 employees) and ranked within each size category based solely on employees’ anonymous responses to the survey questions. The top-scoring employers in each size category are then selected as the Top Workplaces. Click HERE to see the complete listing of Top Workplaces in the Baltimore region.
