A company representative must submit the online form in order to register for the survey. Registration begins in late August and ends in early November.

Invite employees to participate:

The survey is open from late August to November. After signing up, 100 Best contacts will be emailed a survey access code and a template for inviting employees to complete the employee survey online. Employees may take the survey on any computer or mobile device with Internet access. Invite all Oregon employees to participate. For employees without computer access, you may request a hard-copy survey. The survey is also available in Spanish, Russian and Traditional Chinese.

Complete the Employer Survey of Benefits:

A representative of management, usually an HR professional, will need to submit a separate survey, accessible with a unique survey link, detailing your benefits policies as they apply to most employees.

Meet participation requirements:

A minimum of 15 employees or 10% of your Oregon workforce, whichever is greater, must complete the survey by the November deadline. Your Employer Survey of Benefits must also be received by this deadline. 100 Best contacts receive weekly updates on employee participation.

Get survey results:

Following completion of the survey, all companies that meet participation requirements will be able to order survey reports detailing strengths and weaknesses of their workplaces based on survey results. Companies are strongly encouraged to complete the feedback loop by communicating survey results back to employees.


The 100 Best Companies list will be released at a dinner event in late February or early March at the Oregon Convention Center and published in the March issue of Oregon Business. Companies will be informed whether or not they made the lists in advance.  100 Best Companies will be free to use our logo in marketing and job recruitment.
