Forbes ranking of top employers drawn from a survey of 30,000 US employees in 25 industry sectors
The Forbes list features the top 500 large employers in the US with more than 5,000 employees, and the top 500 midsize companies with 1,000 - 5,000 employees. ICON was the highest ranked CRO in the best large employers listing, and is amongst the top 10 companies in the ‘Drugs & Biotechnology' industry sector ranking. This is the second consecutive year that ICON has been the top ranked CRO.
Forbes ‘America's Best Employers List' is determined following an independent, online survey of almost 30,000 employees at companies with at least 1,000 people, from 25 industry sectors. The voluntary participation in online panels allowed employees to share their opinions about their employers openly and without any influence from their employer. Respondents were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own companies on a scale of 0 - 10, and were also asked to name good and bad employers in industry sectors other than their own.
"We are proud to be named by Forbes as one of the best employers in
America for the second consecutive year, and to be ranked the top CRO
and amongst the top 10 employers in the Drugs and Biotechnology industry
overall," commented Dr.
