You’re probably wondering how we measure workplace happiness ...

Once a month, we ask employees at over 500 companies around the world how happy they are at work. We separated each company into 14 different industries then calculated the average happiness score for each organization.

For this award, we analyzed the results by calculating the average happiness score for each company in the different industries to find out winners.
