Expedia Named The Best Company To Work For In 2016

Travel firm Expedia has topped a list of the best companies to work for in 2016, according to an employee feedback survey from Glassdoor.

Expedia has moved from bottom to top of the list in just one year, surging from 25th place in 2015 to replace Google at the head of the table in 2016. Google which won the survey last year, slipped to 8th place for 2016.

Recruitment firm Hays moved up from 14th place last year to take the second spot for 2016, and list-newcomer AKQA, a digital agency specialist, came in third.

Explaining the methodology behind the award, the Glassdoor website says:

“Award winners are determined using feedback employees have shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year. Employees complete an anonymous company review that captures their overall job and company satisfaction, as well as qualitative insights into the best reasons to work at their company, along with what needs improvement.”

“Based on feedback employees share during the year long period of eligibility, Glassdoor then applies a proprietary algorithm to each award category. As part of the algorithm, Glassdoor considers the quality, quantity, and consistency of reviews.”
