The rankings list was separated into two categories: large companies with more than 500 employees, and small/mid-sized companies with less than 500 employees. The final list was compiled from over 10 million rankings across 60,000 U.S. companies.
The Comparably Awards were developed to celebrate companies and leaders considered most outstanding in 16 different categories through feedback provided by employees, and differ from most other “best of” lists by segmenting ratings based on demographics to ensure many groups of employees are heard.
