Indeed's Top-Rated Workplace award highlights the best employers across a variety of categories that matter to job seekers — including employers who rank the highest in specific industries, locations, cultural values, professions, and more. This recognition is based on the 100+ million ratings & reviews on Indeed company pages.
Indeed publishes new ranking lists from time to time, and the criteria and focus of the lists depend on criteria that are most relevant for job seekers. Companies are ranked by workplace attributes, industries, by specific geographical areas, and nationally.
In lists that rank by location, industry, or job type, employers matching the criteria are shown and ranked. To be included in this view, a company must be eligible for visibility in this list, based on sufficient reviews for the relevant category (regardless of sponsored status) and be in accordance with baseline requirements as listed below.
After rankings and ratings are calculated, companies may be excluded for a variety of reasons such as suspicions of fraud, abuse or other activities which Indeed ultimately determines may negatively affect the veracity or utility of the rankings for job seekers. Indeed does not include employers that categorize as multi-level marketing organizations or that require payment to the employer before employment can be offered.
Overall company rankings and eligibility are reviewed and updated on a periodic basis, and in most cases annually. Reviews & ratings that determine rankings are pulled from the last two years prior to the list being published. It should be noted that the rating displayed on an employer's company page is their review data from all time.
Information on a company (such as industry, logos and description) is aggregated from a variety of public sources for companies who have not claimed their pages or with incomplete/insufficient information on their company page.
Companies wishing to update their information may claim their page at any time for free and add/update the information accordingly. Company provided information will be reflected on the Top-Rated Workplace ranking page soon afterward.
Company ratings are determined solely by reviews left by users on Indeed.
Indeed uses a proprietary algorithm to rank companies using a variety of factors, such as average rating, number of reviews, and the history of job openings. But in general, companies with a large number of high ratings will place higher in the rankings.
The ranking methodology is applied uniformly across all companies, in all lists.
Top-Rated Workplace lists are determined at Indeed's sole discretion based on Indeed user-submitted ratings and sub-ratings. This recognition is valid for one year from date of announcement or until next year's Top-Rated Workplace awards for this category are announced. Indeed reserves the right to retract the award if circumstances arise.
