The Top 100 highest-rated companies with the Best Perks & Benefits are based on anonymous employee feedback on Comparably.com to a variety of questions regarding an employee’s overall satisfaction with their perks and benefits.

This set of Comparably Awards were derived from sentiment ratings provided by employees who anonymously rated their employers on Comparably.com during a 12-month period, August 2022 through August 2023.

Rankings were determined based on a series of questions related to perks and benefits (in yes/no, 1-10 scale, and multiple-choice format). The answer to each question was given a numerical score and then compared to companies of similar size.

There were no fees or costs associated with participating, nor was nomination required. To qualify, large employers must have met a minimum of 75 employee participants, with additional weight given to companies with more employee participation.

The final data set was compiled from 15 million ratings across 70,000 U.S. companies.
