About the World's Best Multinational Workplaces list
Since 2011, Great Place to Work® has identified the top organizations that create great workplaces in multiple countries in which they operate through the publication of the World's Best Multinational Workplaces list. To be considered eligible for the multinational list, companies must meet our definition of a Multinational Company and appear on a minimum of 5 national best workplaces lists that rank organizations based on the results of their Trust Index© employee survey and Culture Audit© assessment (to qualify in the United States, we look at winners of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list). The results of those national lists, in addition to extra points awarded for the number of countries an organization surveyed employees in, and the percentage of the company's global workforce represented by those surveys, are combined to create a top 25 ranking.
Candidates for the list must have a minimum of 5,000 employees worldwide, and 40% of their workforce (or 5,000 employees) must be based outside of the country in which they are headquartered. Candidates for the 2016 World's Best Multinational Workplaces list will have appeared on the following lists: Best Workplaces in Asia 2016, Best Workplaces in Latin America 2016, Best Workplaces in Europe 2016, Best Workplaces in Canada 2016, Best Workplaces in Nigeria 2016, Best Workplaces in Brazil 2016 and Fortune Best Companies to Work For in US 2016.
