How are winners selected?
An independent panel of experts will select the winners based on the full scope of their commitment to their employees’ financial security.
What are the criteria?
Companies are evaluated based on factors including:
- The range of financial benefits offered: How well do the benefits that companies offer address the key components of financial security, from defined contribution accounts to health coverage to various forms of insurance, and more.
- A broader commitment to the financial security of employees as demonstrated by the company's culture, financial education and communications efforts, training and development opportunities, work/life balance accommodations, and other programs and policies that influence employees overall financial security.
- Each entrant industry, strength of benefits for that industry, workforce demographics, employee retention rate, and other selection criteria will also be considered.
Winners will be chosen based on a combination of survey data and phone interviews (finalists only). Providers of benefits are not named or considered during any part of the entry, judging, or recognition process.
