Questionnaire
How did you hear about the program?
If Other

Please be aware that as part of the “Best" program, a certain threshold of employee survey responses must be received in order for the analysts to consider the survey data valid.  If a company does not meet this threshold, their full consideration for the “Best” list may be jeopardized, even resulting in elimination.  In the rare case a company’s response rate is extremely low, a statistically valid Employee Feedback Report (if purchased) will not be presented.
