The Best Places to Work in Los Angeles 2022:
A Look at the Winners
The 16th annual “Best Places to Work in Los Angeles” awards celebration this year was hosted by the Los Angeles Business Journal as a virtual event on August 11th at 2pm.
As always, our annual list of 100 “Best Places to Work” companies comes from top local employers that participated in a detailed survey conducted by Workforce Research Group. The survey ranks small, medium, and large companies on subjects such as leadership, corporate culture, communications, and much more.
The event saluted companies that, according to the people who work for them, are the most successful in business and in nurturing their own.
The special live event was also highlighted by an engaging panel of four experts – each from high-ranking best places to work companies from last year. In a spirited and informative discussion, the panelists shared how companies manage to build and maintain a strong company culture, how the needs of employees have changed, how mental health has become a priority and the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion.
Our esteemed panelists are listed below along with some of their remarks from the event.

The Methodology Behind How We Did It
The Best Places to Work in Los Angeles is an annual celebration of elite employers who have proven that they know what it takes to create environments where people love to come to work. Identifying and recognizing these outstanding workplaces is a joint effort of The Los Angeles Business Journal and Workforce Research Group.
The Best Places to Work in Los Angeles program was open to all publicly or privately held companies with at least 15 employees working in LA County. The workplace assessment and survey process was managed by Workforce Research Group (WRG). WRG, an independent workplace excellence research firm, managed the registration process, conducted the surveys, evaluated the data and ultimately chose the firms good enough to make the list. WRG manages 39 similar programs in other cities, states and industries, as well as managing programs in Canada, Morocco and the UK.
Part one of the assessment (three-quarters of each company’s score) involved a confidential 81 question Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey (EESS) which was used to evaluate the employees’ workplace experience and company culture. Part two of the assessment (one-quarter of each company’s score) consisted of The WRG Employer Questionnaire (EQ), used to collect information about each company’s benefits, policies, practices and other general information. The two combined sets of data allowed the experts at WRG to conduct an in-depth analysis of the strengths and opportunities that exist in each company. WRG’s workplace assessment experts determined who was good enough to make the list and where they ranked.
While the survey process and evaluation was free, many participating companies opted to purchase the full WRG Employee Feedback Report which include a comprehensive summary of the employee feedback. The report also included the employee written comments and the Los Angeles Benchmark Reports. This report will help each company understand their workforce better and equip them with the information to make their workplace even better.
