Applicants are evaluated based on responses to questions regarding policies and practices related to the attraction and retention of top performers, and also the responses of employees that complete surveys about their workplace, including a survey that measures the preferences of top performing people.
Applicants are judged on:
- Organizational Strategy, Policies & Communication
- Recruitment, Selection & Onboarding
- Employee Wellbeing
- 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 September 1!
