About Glassdoor's Employees' Choice Awards
Honoring the Best Places to Work
What are the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards?
The annual Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards recognize the best places to work 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 opportunities, 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 2016 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, headquarter location, CEO 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 2016 Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards has not yet been announced.
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.

2015 Award Eligibility Requirements
For the 2015 Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards, Glassdoor features three lists honoring Best Places to Work. These distinct lists, along with basic criteria for a company to be considered include:
- 50 Best Places to Work:
Companies with 1,000 or more employees must receive at least 50 company reviews from U.S.-based employees.
- 50 Best Small & Medium Companies to Work For:
Companies with fewer than 1,000 employees must receive at least 20 company reviews from U.S.-based employees.
- 25 Best Places to Work UK:
Companies must receive at least 20 company reviews from UK-based employees.
Regardless of company size, winners were determined based entirely on valid and approved company reviews submitted to Glassdoor between November 13, 2013 and November 2, 2014. 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.
To provide 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.
