The list of the top 25 best workplaces has been arrived at by assigning two-third weightage to the anonymous survey conducted amongst the employees and the remaining one-third weightage to the strength of people practices implemented across the organisation, measured through responses to a structured questionnaire submitted by the organisation. The study this year covers 106 manufacturing companies and involves 37,060 employees who took the survey.
