2016 Workforce 100 List

By Sarah Sipek

Mar. 14, 2016

Workforce magazine would like to congratulate the 100 companies that have made our
2016 Workforce 100 list. Workforce 100 2016

Workforce editors, along with researchers from the Human Capital Media Advisory Group, the magazine’s research arm, created a statistical formula to sift through publicly available information to separate the best from the rest. Now in its third year, the Workforce 100 recognizes excellence in multiple human resources-related areas such as recruiting, learning, leadership and diversity.

To enhance the list even further, this year we worked with Glassdoor to improve our results by adding the workforce review website’s internal data to get a better understanding of what employees think about the companies that made our shortlist. Those data were added to our formula this year to create the final Workforce 100 list.

Below you’ll find the companies that made this year’s list. They are listed in alphabetical order. We will release the exact rankings of these companies in our June issue.

Congratulations to all the companies on this year’s Workforce 100 list.
