About Glassdoor's Employees' Choice Awards

Honoring the Best Places to Work


What are the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards?

Glassdoor's Employees' Choice Awards recognize the best places to work each year, based entirely on employee feedback. Award winners are determined using feedback employees have shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year. Employees complete an anonymous company review survey that captures their overall job and company satisfaction, along with sentiment toward career opportunites, compensation & benefits, work-life balance, senior leadership and more.

How do I submit my company for Glassdoor's Employees' Choice Awards?

It's easy — just share a review for your company and ask employees to do the same. The survey should take no more than a few minutes to complete. Only one company review per employee is accepted each year, and each review must meet our community guidelines. By sharing a review today, you put your employer in the running for the 2015 awards.

EMPLOYERS: Don't forget to register for a free employer account to update your basic company profile information. Once you have registered, visit your company's Employer Center and update employee count, office photos and more.

I posted a company review last year, will it count toward this year's Employees' Choice Awards?

No. The Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award rankings are based on annual review submissions and not cumulative contributions; therefore, placement on previous lists does not guarantee a spot on the upcoming list.

When is the deadline to submit?

The deadline to submit a company review for the 2015 awards has not yet been announced. Check back here or on our blog for updates.

How are Glassdoor's Employees' Choice Awards different from other "best of" lists?

Unlike many workplace-related awards that require companies to self-nominate, the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards rely solely on employee feedback.

The award eligibility requirements and deadline for the 2015 Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards have not yet been announced.

Each year, Glassdoor's Employees' Choice Award winners are determined based on company reviews and ratings shared by employees on Glassdoor over the past year. To share a company review, employees are encouraged to complete a brief online survey that asks them to rate their company, a variety of workplace attributes and their CEO. The survey also asks employees to provide insights into some of the best reasons to work for their company as well as some of the downsides. The reviews must be provided anonymously by employees, without incentive by employers. Only one company review per employee per year is accepted, and each review must meet Glassdoor's community guidelines.
