Based on the photos submitted for this special section, it looks like fun is an essential element to being one of Hawaii’s Best Workplaces. Fun isn’t necessarily their goal — read their answers here to questions about how they operate and it’s clear these businesses are handling the basics right. They’re hiring the people who fit their culture to do rewarding work in a set of systems that allow them to thrive. Think of “fun” as a sign that all is well.
Twelve companies are new to this list and have made impressive debuts, such as Sudokrew, ranked No. 1 in small business, and Monsanto, No. 1 in large business. Congratulations to them and to all our returning honorees.
Great workplaces are created by team efforts and while there is no “I” in team, as they say, teams do have coaches and champions who lead the way. This year we’ve added a Workplace Champions page to honor three outstanding individuals. — A. Kam Napier, Editor-In-Chief
How do Hawaii’s employers compare with those in other parts of the country?
Quantum Workplace, a national research partner of American City Business Journals, the parent company of Pacific Business News, collected and analyzed data from workers throughout the Aloha State to determine this year’s Best Workplaces winners and finalists. PBN reached out to each finalist with a Q&A about what perks are offered at a Best Workplace.
Each Best Workplaces contest begins with an open call for nominations, anyone can nominate an employer as a Best Workplace. Nominated organizations are then invited to participate in the program by completing the registration process. During registration, each employer provides basic organizational information and employee contact information. Quantum Workplace then sends surveys directly to the employees of these organizations. Each employee receives a unique link that cannot be forwarded or shared. Once data collection is complete, Quantum Workplace conducts a rigorous security audit to identify and disqualify organizations who violate the rules and spirit of the contest. Next, the results are compiled and analyzed to determine which organizations have the highest levels of employee engagement and thus will be named one of Hawaii’s Best Workplaces. Winners and finalists are chosen solely based on the results of the employee survey.
