Quartz’s Best Companies for Remote Workers, now in its second year, is a membership-based global ranking to recognize employers who set the standard for distributed work. The list is determined by surveys of employers and employees conducted by the Best Companies Group.

Remote work helps attract the best talent, wherever they are. Beyond a source of pride, the distinction of being on Quartz’s list of the best places to work remotely will help potential future employees around the world understand your company’s brand and its approach to remote working.
What are the details of how I submit / enter?
When you enter the program, Best Companies Group (BCG) will contact your company and organize a two-part survey (multiple languages will be available). In the first part, the employer fills out a questionnaire about its policies, practices, benefits and the demographics of its employees. In Part 2, BCG will conduct online employee engagement and satisfaction surveys to collect detailed data on each participating company, across a range of categories determined by Quartz.
Employees complete a detailed statement survey using a 5-point scale ranging from “Strongly Agree” to “Strongly Disagree”. The survey also includes several demographic and open-ended questions. Temporary or seasonal employees, per diems, independent contractors (1099), interns and consultants are not counted as permanent full or part time employees and are not included in the survey process.
Only remote workers will be included in the employee survey process.
Best Companies Group analyzes the data and determines the rankings, which will be published in Quartz at Work, the edition of Quartz in the modern workplace.
