How We Ranked Our Winners

Madison Magazine and Live at Five’s Best Places to Work is based on an employee-engagement framework developed by Next Generation Consulting.

Sixteen companies reached the fifty-percent survey response rate for eligibility.

Employees were surveyed on the following six “areas of engagement”:

1: Trust Working in an environment where information is shared and people act with integrity and respect

2: Management Working with supervisors and managers who lead, guide and give feedback to individuals and teams

3: Development Having opportunities to learn and grow

4: Rewards Being compensated and appreciated according to one’s performance and contribution to an organization

5: Connection Feeling a part of something bigger; working for more than just a paycheck

6: Life-Work Balance Having flexibility to pursue their career and a life outside of work The seven winning companies for 2008 were chosen because they ranked the highest—over 85 percent—in all six dimensions of employee engagement.
