The Forbes World’s Best Employer listing was based on employee feedback and included publicly traded companies from 60 countries.

“More than 430,000 global recommendations were analyzed by Statista [an online statistics, market research and business intelligence portal] to create the World’s Best Employers list. Employees were asked to rate their own employer and the likelihood they would recommend the company to a friend or family member.”- Forbes.

This, according to Forbes, was based on “high ratings on working conditions and, most importantly, diversity.”
