How are the winners selected for the Franchising@WORK Awards?

Companies that participate in our franchising@WORK survey are eligible for the franchising@WORK Awards recognizing the best franchise companies to work for. The award winners are selected based on their employee engagement benchmark scores on 24 questions in eight key areas, which include, satisfaction, alignment, team, and leadership. Scores for each benchmark question are determined  using a weighted scale — the most positive response option (such as “excellent” or “strongly agree”) having the most positive effect, and the most negative option having the most negative effect.
