The ranking honours employers based on an independent survey asking how likely employees would be to recommend their employer— and other employers in their respective industries — to someone else.
Tim Gruber, senior vice president of human resources at Granite, says: "To be recognised for the fifth time as one of America’s Best Midsize Employers is an honour and reflection of our culture here at Granite. This designation is made possible by each member of the Granite team and their unwavering dedication to excellence. Despite the extraordinary challenges we have faced this past year, our people have continued to foster a culture that promotes inclusion and integrity.”
Forbes and Statista conducted an anonymous survey with a sample of more than 50,000 employees belonging to institutions comprised of more than 1,000 employees in the US, across 25 different industries.
The scores are calculated based on participants’ direct and indirect recommendations as well as their opinions of other work-related topics such as working conditions, potential for development, and their company’s response to Covid-19.
