HRO Today has
annually ranked HR service providers through Baker’s Dozen Customer
Satisfaction Ratings™ for nearly two decades. Its research revealed that
while there are many rankings of various aspects of HR, there isn’t one
definitive source of which companies are the best for human resources. Enter HRO Today’s HR100.
The HRO Today research
team reviewed nearly 1,100 companies to come up with the top 100 HR
departments. HRO Today’s HR100
scores and ranks HR departments in eight core areas: workplace culture,
employee benefits, diversity and inclusion, employee development and talent
management, human resources innovation, leadership development, talent
acquisition, and employer brand. Performance in these core categories is
aggregated, forming an index that provides a reasonable score for overall HR
The HRO Today research team collected public data from nearly 40 established benchmarking and ranking programs in the identified categories to create the ranking.
Examples of these programs include HRO
Today‘s Most Admired Employer Brand Awards, Fortune
Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, Training
Magazine’s Top 100, and Glassdoor ratings. This generated a score based
equally on the depth and breadth of outside and internal recognition.
The data is then aggregated and weighted to create the final score, producing
the index used in the ranking.
To generate the score, the HRO
Today research team first examined the total number of lists within
each of the HR areas outlined in a particular company appeared on. Weights
were assigned to each source depending on the scope and exclusivity of the
list. The raw scores were then summed, and an index was established to create
the final score.
“The reason HRO Today produces the HR100 each year is
to promote best practices in human resources,” says Larry Basinait, HRO TOday VP of Market Research, who manages the HR100 and Baker’s Dozen processes. “The companies that rank on the HR
100 are those that other companies should study and emulate and look to
as a potential source of innovation within their own organization. Those being
recognized on the list have the most accomplished human resources departments
in the nation, and are elevating the role of HR throughout the business
