Every year for the past 14 years, job review site Glassdoor has published its annual Employee Choice Awards — a list of the best places to work across multiple categories. The awards highlight the best workplaces in the US, Canada, UK, France and Germany, along with the top 100 workplaces worldwide. There is also a ranking of the 50 best small to medium-sized businesses to work for, a list that highlights companies with fewer than 1,000 employees.
Awards are determined based on employee feedback on the Glassdoor review site — including companies with more than 75 ratings for large companies, and more than 30 ratings for small companies.
Glassdoor asks employees to rank nine separate aspects of working for an employer, including:
“The world of work is rapidly evolving, fueled by the pandemic and now millions of workers are reassessing their expectations from their employers. Christian Sutherland Wong, CEO of Glassdoor, said in a January 12 press release that this year’s Best Workplace Award winners are leading the way by listening to Employee feedback and response and reimagine the employee experience to put their employees first.
The average company has a Glassdoor rating of 3.7. The winners of the Best Workplace Awards 2022 have ratings of 4.9, with no rating lower than 4.2.

Best workplaces in 2022
Chip maker Nvidia was named the #1 Best Workplace among companies with 1,000 or more employees, with a rating of 4.6. And Nvidia isn’t alone among the tech companies on this year’s list. Although technology is often considered a stressful field that requires long and intense hours, the best companies in the tech industry have earned high ratings from Glassdoor. This year, 40 tech companies made the comprehensive list of the best workplaces, 12 more tech companies than appeared on the 2021 list.
Other key areas on the list included retail and manufacturing, with nine companies each appearing, and finance, with seven companies making the list.
With so many tech companies on the list, it’s no surprise that the Bay Area, home of Silicon Valley, had the largest number of top companies featured – 30 corporate headquarters located in the region featured in the Glassdoor rankings. Other cities hosting top-rated companies include Boston (9), Los Angeles (8), and New York City (7).
Marketing agency KlientBoost based in Costa Mesa, California tops the list of the best SMEs to work for in the United States with an average rating of 4.9. KlientBoost is closely followed by software developer Grover Gaming, which also has a rating of 4.9.
