Forbes adds that they partnered with market research firm Statista to put together the 2022 list by “surveying 60,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees.” They add, “Participants were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family, and to nominate organizations other than their own.
