How is "Coolest Place to Work" Decided?

In 2013, the Corridor Business Journal (CBJ) unveiled a new way to recognize businesses for their culture. Throughout the Corridor, companies of all sizes compete for the prize of “Coolest Place to Work.” The contest identifies and honors Eastern Iowa companies that have created the most engaging and rewarding work environments. Winners are selected based on Worker Satisfaction Surveys and recognized within small (1-20 employees), medium (21-99 employees) and large (100 or more employees) businesses.
