VANCOUVER, Wash.--()--Comparably (now a ZoomInfo company) – a leading workplace culture and corporate brand reputation platform – announced the 2023 winners for Best CEOs, Best Company Culture, Best Companies for Women, and Best Companies for Diversity in its 7th Annual Best Places to Work series.

With the most comprehensive data on what it’s like to work at organizations – based on gender, ethnicity, age, experience, title, industry, location, education, and company size – the site has accumulated 20 million ratings on 70,000 U.S. & Canadian companies. This set of categories is based on anonymous employee feedback to more than 50 data-driven questions in nearly 20 core culture metrics within the past year. Winners are segmented by large and SMB companies.

“When searching for a great place to work in 2024, it is important to pick one that is committed to providing a positive workplace culture for all employees," said Chad Herring, CHRO of ZoomInfo (Comparably's parent company). "The top-rated organizations and leaders on this year's 7th annual list have three key things in common. They are transparent about their business decisions, value their employees, and remain hyper-focused on their mission, vision and values."

For the first time since the launch of Comparably Awards in 2017, half of the Top 10 Best CEOs from large companies are women and more than 25 percent of the Top 100 are diverse.

About Comparably Awards

The final rankings were determined based on the most positive sentiment ratings to a series of questions in nearly 20 core culture metrics, from compensation (salary, bonus, raises) and career growth (opportunities, mentorship, goals) to leadership (CEO, executives, direct managers) and work environment (work-life balance, perks & benefits, coworkers) in yes/no, true/false, 1-10 scale, and multiple-choice format. The answer to each question was given a numerical score and then compared to companies of similar size.

To qualify, Large companies (more than 500 employees) must have met a minimum of 75 employee participants and Small/Mid-Size companies (500 or fewer employees) must have a minimum of 25 employee participants. For statistical significance, additional weight was given to companies with more participation from their employee base, relative to company size. There were no fees or costs associated with participating, nor was nomination required. Complete methodology can be found here.
