This is the eighth year The Union-Tribune has partnered with Philadelphia-based Energage to determine San Diego County’s Top Workplaces. The results are based solely on a scientific employee survey process.
Starting in May, The Union-Tribune welcomed anyone to nominate companies as Top Workplaces. Energage also reached out to companies. In all, 2,176 employers in San Diego County were invited to take part in the process. Any employer was eligible, as long as it had at least 50 employees in the county. Employers could be public, private, nonprofit, or governmental. There is no cost to enter the Top Workplaces program.
Combined, the companies surveyed in 2020 employed 18,762 people in the region. Of those employees who received questionnaires, 12,591 responded, either on paper or online. For this year’s winners list, 70 employers earned recognition as Top Workplaces and were ranked based on their employee survey feedback.
