Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to compile the rankings by anonymously surveying approximately 10,000 employees at companies that employ at least 250 people in Spanish (with one English-language option) to determine which ones excel in working conditions, pay, talent development, gender equality, social responsibility, and more.
Survey participants are also asked to rate their willingness to recommend their employers to friends and family. In addition, they were asked to rate other employers in their respective industries that stood out positively or negatively.
