The Project

The Best Employers for New Grads were selected based on Statista’s innovative methodology, guaranteeing unbiased results and providing reliable insights. Over 20,000 U.S. employees were surveyed in companies with a minimum of 1,000 employees to identify The Best Employers for New Grads.

The evaluation was based on two different criteria:

• Direct recommendations: Employees were asked to give their opinions on a series of statements regarding Atmosphere & Development, Image, Working Conditions, Compensation, Workplace, Diversity, and their overall willingness to recommend their employer to family and friends

• Indirect Recommendations: Participants were also given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively. Only the recommendations of respondents with less than 10 years of work experience were considered.

Scoring

Our scoring model is based on independently collected survey data from employees in the US. This data is divided into several assessment dimensions.

Score breakdown

Score
breakdown

On a scale of 0 to 10, respondents indicate how likely they are to recommend their own employer to friends or family – with 0 being the worst and 10 the best.

Respondents indicate the industry they work in. Based on this, each respondent is shown a selection of employers who are active in the given sector. Respondents can then voluntarily recommend or advise against employers from the list.

Methodology

Concept

The employee surveys conducted by Statista R are carried out independently of the potentially awarded employer brands. This reduces distortion of the results that could arise from non-anonymous surveys (e.g. social desirability in response behavior). The focus on willingness to recommend and on general questions about working conditions allows for comparability across heterogeneous sectors.

Data Collection

For data collection, Statista R programs detailed online questionnaires that ask survey participants about work-related topics. Statista R works with leading online access panels worldwide to identify suitable participants. During the survey, the incoming evaluations are checked for quality & validity (interview length, variances, inconsistencies) and sorted accordingly.

Evaluation

For the evaluation, Statista R applies a scoring model that primarily relies on the direct and indirect evaluation of the respondents. This includes both the evaluation of the respondent’s own employer as well as the evaluation of other employers from the same industry.

Quality Assurance

For each potential award-winning employer brand, the number of employees and the headquarters in the respective country are researched. This step serves as quality assurance and is presented as information in the publication.
