Companies from across the state submitted a two-part survey to determine the “best” companies to work for in Alabama. The first part evaluated the company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part measured the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group. a company that works with national and local partners to establish and manage “Best Places to Work,” “Best Companies” and “Best Employers” programs, managed the overall registration and survey process in Alabama, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
