Once the registration information is received by Best Companies Group, companies will receive a confirmation email (which will include additional instructions). There is a nominal participation fee to cover the costs associated with the evaluation process. The participation fee is based upon the size of the company and the employee survey method selected.

**Following registration, if your primary contact does not receive confirmation via email within the next business day with an attachment of instructions, please call 1-877-455-2159 to confirm that your registration has been received.

To ensure the credibility of the information, companies with 15-24 employees must have an 80% (or better) response rate to be considered for the list.
Employees are randomly selected. Best Companies Group offers the option to survey more employees than the random sample calculated in the above chart, and/or include additional employees in the survey process who work in locations outside of the program area. Please contact Best Companies Group for details and pricing.

Added Value: Upon completion of the assessment process, all participating companies will receive an Employee Feedback Report which details the results of their specific survey. Similar reports can cost thousands of dollars if initiated independently. Once the registration form is received, Best Companies Group will send the company (according to the timeline):

  • The Employer Benefits & Policies Questionnaire (employer questionnaire)
  • The Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey (employee survey)
  • Survey distribution instructions
  • Other supporting materials and instructions (see Best Companies Assessment Process for more details).
