Applicant organizations are evaluated based on their responses to questions about policies and practices for attracting and retaining top performers. Also considered are the responses from employees who complete surveys about their workplace, including a survey that measures the preferences of top-performing individuals.
Applicants are judged on:
- Organizational Strategy, Policies, & Communication
- Recruitment, Selection, & Onboarding
- Employee Well-Being
- Employee Engagement & Development
- Total Rewards
- Challenging & Meaningful Work & Professional Development
Each organization that submits a completed application receives an overall score. Overall scores are ranked in order from highest to lowest, and the top 99 organizations are designated as the NorthCoast 99 winners. ERC does not publish a ranked listing of winners.
The NorthCoast 99 application will help you discover what drives top performers and how you can attract and retain them within your organization.
The 2019 award recipients have been determined and notified. We look forward to revealing the names of our winning organizations on August 22.
