Cheat sheets: How Fortune—and 3 other major publications—choose their 'best places to work'
Since 1998, Fortune and Great Places to Work have partnered to develop the annual rankings.
In 2018, researchers made significant revisions in the list's methodology to account for changes in the way "we do business—and work."
Previously, the rankings focused on trust, pride, and camaraderie. But after the change last year, the rankings are based on six metrics: whether workers are "reaching their full human potential," trust, values, innovation, financial growth, and leadership effectiveness. The first two factors account for 85% of the grade, while the other four make up the remaining 15%.
