The top employers comprising the list were chosen by Forbes based on an independent survey conducted by Statista.com. The survey included more than 30,000 American employees working for U.S. companies and institutions with at least 1,000 workers. Respondents were asked how likely they would be to recommend their employer, or any other employer in their industry, to friends or family. More than 1,800 companies were represented in the survey.
