Employer Resources: Best Places to Work

What are Glassdoor Awards?

Each year, Glassdoor celebrates outstanding employers throughout the world. The Employees' Choice Awards, based entirely on employee feedback, recognize the Best Places to Work in multiple countries worldwide. As of 2022, we’ve suspended Top CEOs indefinitely as part of our awards program. For the latest research and insights related to senior leadership and the employee experience at companies, visit Glassdoor Economic Research.

How do I submit my company for a Glassdoor Award?

It's easy. Just share a company review for your employer to be considered. And, make sure to encourage your fellow employees to do the same. The review should take no more than a few minutes to complete. Only one company review per employee is accepted each year. All reviews must meet the Glassdoor Community Guidelines.

How are Glassdoor Awards different from other "best of" lists?

Unlike other workplace awards, there is no self-nomination process and no cost involved. Winners are determined solely based on reviews provided by those who know a company best — the employees.

How are winners of Glassdoor Awards determined?

For the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards honoring the Best Places to Work, award winners are determined using feedback employees have shared on Glassdoor during a 12-month eligibility period. Employees can anonymously complete and submit a company review that asks them to rate and review their employer and give insight into what it’s really like to work at a company, including what’s working well (Pros), what needs improvement (Cons) and advice to senior management.

Based on feedback shared, Glassdoor’s Economic Research team then applies a proprietary algorithm to determine the winners of each Best Places to Work list.

When are Glassdoor Award winners announced?

The Best Places to Work lists are scheduled to be announced in January.

I posted a review last year. Will it count toward a Glassdoor Award this year?

Glassdoor Award winners are based on annual review submissions and not cumulative contributions. Reviews submitted during the 12-month period of eligibility will be considered. Reviews submitted after will be considered for the award next year. Previous award wins do not influence future awards.
