- 0-2 yrs employees are happiest with their current workplace and are less likely to stay.
The process of selecting the top 100 involved an online survey targeted at workers in all sectors through social media, email and our extensive database of professionals and experts across industries.The survey captured questions on work experience, salary parameters and working conditions. The survey focused on Gender, Age, Employment Status, Monthly Salary, Current Organization of Employment, Reasons for Commitment to Current Employer and others
The categorization of respondents for the Best 100 Companies was based on the premise that employed respondents are better qualified to provide accurate and unbiased views on their current or past organizations.
All respondents were classified according to Age Bracket, Seniority Level, Monthly Salary and duration at the company. Only seniority level had a weighting and impact on the final results, with the senior level carrying the most weighting and entry-level carrying the least. The Business Owner level carried no weighting so as not to make the results biased.
Nominations by current and former employees had a higher weighting than those who nominated companies based on hearsay or public perception. The final scores per company were then normalized to take account of companies who have thousands of employees. Only companies confirmed to have more than 50 employees were considered in the final result.
The major work parameters responsible for the satisfaction ratings indicated above were centered primarily on Monthly Salary, Work/Life Balance, Career Growth and Advancement, Welfare Benefits and Job Security in order of importance.
How to rank as one of the best 100 companies to work for
The top 100 companies to work for are determined by the general public, industry experts and current employees. This is how your organization can also rank high on the list;
Nurture a sense of pride
Build your brand into one that your employees will be proud to be associated with, support them with incentives and policies that will encourage them to embody your vision, mission and values.
Overhaul your company culture
Your company culture is what determines whether employees will love going to work or absolutely despise the experience. Create a culture that harnesses the strengths of all individuals and promotes an enriching work environment.
Give room for career growth
Provide opportunities for employees to expand their skills and grow into new roles and opportunities because if they can’t grow with you, growth will take them away from you.
Provide a competitive salary & benefits package:
One thing that the top 10 companies have in common is the competitive salary & benefits package they offer. Giving remuneration that is in sync with industry standards is a sure way to endear current and future employees to you.
