100 Best Companies to Work For 2018

Seattle Business magazine unveiled its 2018 list of the 100 best companies to work for in 2018. McKesson Ventures portfolio company Accolade ranked #19 in the list of businesses with headquarters outside Washington state. Employees remarked that the leadership of the rapidly growing company “is always available for questions, concerns, and comments.”

Businesses in four categories—small firms, midsize firms, large firms, and firms headquartered outside Washington state—were evaluated based on confidential surveys submitted by employees from companies all across the state.

Companies need to nominate themselves to be considered for the Best Companies to Work For award. After that, employees respond to a survey conducted by the research firm Fieldwork Webwork. Firms are ranked based on employees’ anonymous feedback across 10 categories: corporate culture, benefits, communication, executive leadership, hiring and retention, responsibility and decision-making, training and education, performance standards, workplace environment, and training and education. The scores in each category are combined to produce an average score, which determines a company’s ranking on the list.
