Member News – 500 Best Employers List
March 25th, 2016
Forbes magazine published its second-annual ranking of the nation’s 500 best employers, working with an online statistics firm to ask 30,000 workers to rate, on a scale of 1 to 10, how likely they were to recommend their employers to someone else. Respondents were also asked how they felt about other employers in the same industry or field.
The listing, which was limited to companies and institutions with at least 5,000 workers, is diverse, although one or two patterns emerge; one being that one-fourth of the top 100 firms are educational institutions.
More than 20 New Jersey employers made the list, with clusters around a few industries, including pharmaceutical companies, Johnson and Johnson of New Brunswick, Merck of Kenilworth and Bayer of Whippany. Real estate was prominent among the state’s entrants on the list as well, with Coldwell Banker of Madison, Weichert of Morris Plains and Century 21 of Madison all making the cut.
