    About the list

    Since 1998, Fortune and Great Place 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 employers conduct business and employees work. Previously, the rankings focused on trust, pride, and camaraderie. Now, the rankings are based on five key metrics:

    • Maximizing human potential;
    • Trust;
    • Values;
    • Innovation; and
    • Leadership effectiveness.

    The first two factors account for 85% of the grade, while the others make up the remaining. The list also looks at financial growth, but that does not contribute to a company's overall score.

    Hilton was named as the No. 1 overall company to work for on this year's list.
