Great Place To Work surveyed companies employing 7.5 million people in the U.S. and received 1.3 million survey responses. Of those, over 191,000 responses were received from employees at companies who were eligible for the 2023 Fortune Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance list. The survey enables employees to share confidential quantitative and qualitative feedback about their organization’s culture by responding to 60 statements on a five-point scale and answering two open-ended questions.

Companies with the broadest set of employees who report positive workplace experience receive the highest rankings on lists.”
