The Best Leadership Teams award is based on anonymous employee rankings of executive leadership teams and direct managers based on the past 12 months (June 2021 to June 2022). This award recognizes leadership teams that are effective in inspiring positive, collective work, and individual growth. 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 15 million rankings across 70,000 U.S. companies.

The Comparably Awards were developed to evaluate and celebrate outstanding companies and leaders across a number of different award categories guided by employee feedback. The Comparably Awards also differ from most other “best of” lists because it segments its survey responses by demographics, to ensure that awards represent the perspectives of a diverse base of employees.
