This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
Thinknear was honored at a special ceremony on August 15th hosted by the Los Angeles Business Journal at the Omni Los Angeles Hotel at California Plaza. A listing of the companies so honored appears in the August 13, 2018 issue of the Los Angeles Business Journal.
