Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just under 300 winning companies.

What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. magazine says it’s more than good pay and good perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership that makes them all work together.
"Cask’s culture is highly valued by our leadership team and we work extremely hard to ensure that every employee feels supported, valued and is given room to grow and achieve the superior goals they set for themselves," said Elizabeth Guezzale, President of Cask LLC. "Our collective team is a rare blend of experienced business consultants and artisan engineers. This unique combination enables Cask to guide our customers in their efforts to embrace organizational change, adopt transformational technology solutions and operate their businesses in a way that allows them to generate optimal and meaningful results."
The 2018 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent – that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
While researching the entries, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes develop:
- Strong company cultures breed stunning individual and team performance.
- Workers at the best companies don’t view their employers as sugar daddies. They aren’t mesmerized by whatever giveaways seem to be the latest fad—be it gourmet lunches or beer fridges.
- When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged. This single factor proved to be one of the largest drivers of employee engagement.
"By including an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves," says James Ledbetter, Inc. editor-in-chief.
