“The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For Program prides itself on conducting a thorough evaluation of companies nominated. The program has selected 1200 companies throughout the nation to receive this honor. Over 250,000 employee surveys were scored and analyzed over the past year. The program also has a ten to one ratio of companies that apply for the award. The process is threefold; nominees are vetted out by our NABR research team. Those identified as potentials are contacted and employees are surveyed. Employer survey data and employee surveys are then scored, weighted and ranked. This process is audited and designed by the Illinois Institute of Technology's market research division and scored by Inquisium-a market research firm out of Virginia. The criteria is determined annually based on market conditions and trends and applied throughout the country. We are proud to honor this year’s winners,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, National Association for Business Resources. “Needless to say the San Diego winners are among the elite employers in the country, and the Best and Brightest team prides itself on the quality of the program verses the quantity of winners.”
