About Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2019 Best Places to Work Methodology
The Best Places to Work in Los Angeles program was open to all publicly or privately held companies with at least 15 employees working in LA County. The workplace assessment and survey process was managed by Best Companies Group (BCG) of Harrisburg, PA. The assessment involved a confidential 81 question employee engagement & satisfaction survey, which evaluated employees’ workplace experience and company culture. In addition, the BCG employer questionnaire collected information about each company’s benefits, policies, practices, and other general information. This combined data supported an in-depth analysis of strengths and opportunities in each company. The report also included written employee comments and Los Angeles benchmark reports to help each company understand their workforce better and equip them with the information to make their workplace even better.
