Forbes’ Methodology: A Closer Look

Forbes’ America’s Best Small Employers list was created to help potential job seekers assess the landscape of small employers, according to a Forbes article about the list. The rankings were compiled after evaluating more than 11,000 businesses across the United States, ultimately recognizing the top 300 companies. Out of those, seven are located in Wisconsin.

The ranking process involved analyzing over 7 million data points from companies with 200 to 1,000 employees. Companies were evaluated based on two key factors:

A. Employee Satisfaction / Public Opinion Data: This took the form of recommendations given by employees anonymously through online surveys. These were either direct recommendations (0 to 10 scores from employees of the company) or indirect recommendations (positive/negative evaluations of companies, reflecting public opinion). Additionally, employee retention (avg. length of employment) was considered.

B. Social Listening Data: The sentiment reflected in various sources across thousands of social media posts related to the company’s relationship with its employees is identified through an algorithm and deemed either positive, negative, or neutral based on textual analysis.

Small Employers Make a Big Impact

“While large businesses tend to get most of the attention, small businesses employ almost half of the American workforce and can offer many advantages,” explained Melissa Gardner, vice president of marketing at the University of Mount Union in Ohio to Forbes magazine in an article about Forbes’ America’s Best Small Business list.
