Through the survey and research process, Best Companies Group (BCG) will be collecting, analyzing and evaluating company data and other sensitive information. BCG is committed to upholding the highest levels of confidentiality with regard to participation and collected information.
BCG only uses the employee email addresses for the purposes of sending the Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey invitations. BCG does not sell or trade the email addresses to any third party for any reason. Submitted email addresses are retained for one year for the purposes of implementing Pulse12 surveys. After that time the addresses are deleted.
At no time will individual or company specific information and data gathered through the Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey or Pulse12 be released to any third party, for any reason, without the advance written permission of the company. Data collected from the group as a whole, through the employee survey process will be used in group benchmarking reports and for trending purposes. Please note, Best Companies Group will provide Pensions & Investments a copy of all responses to the first open-ended question (What does this organization do that makes it a place where people would like to work?) on the employee survey for their editorial purposes.
For the sole purposes of publishing “Best” lists and special sections, BCG will provide the authorized media partner with employer information to assist with the development of the special publication, website and/or recognition event. The information released will be limited to the data gathered by the Employer Questionnaire. Any such information used in a public forum will be positive in nature and will only reflect positively on the company.
Information regarding the participation of a company in current or prior years will not be released unless the company has made the list and that distinction has been made public.
If you have any questions about this confidentiality information, please call Best Companies Group toll-free at (877) 455-2159.
