The companies were divided into three categories: small (fewer than 250 employees), medium (250-999) and large (1,000 and above). The hospital was named among the top 20 large employers.

Workplace Dynamics invited 1,675 organizations to participate and surveyed employees in more than 193 companies. Employees responded to a set of statements about their workplace. For example, statements focused on issues such as the direction of the company (“I have confidence in the leadership of this organization”), execution (“at this organization we do things efficiently and well”) and conditions (“I have the flexibility I need to balance my work and personal life”).
