For 11 years, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Top Workplaces event has recognized Atlanta-based companies where employees are beyond satisfied with their working experience, and this year will be no different.

On Thursday, March 18 the AJC will host the annual Top Workplaces Awards ceremony. The virtual event is free to attend and will be hosted by AJC editor-in-chief Kevin Riley.

As in years past, the event will celebrate Atlanta’s most dynamic companies, but this year the program has been expanded to include 175 of the top workplaces in metro Atlanta as opposed to the usual 150. An increase in employee participation and popularity has led to the expansion.

At the virtual event, attendees will find out who made this year’s list and hear from the top companies and leadership winners in each business category. This top workplaces list will also spotlight businesses across the metro area that have high employee satisfaction.

For 2021, 3,033 metro Atlanta companies were nominated or asked to participate in the awards program by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and its partner, Energage. Employees responded to print and online solicitation stories and promotions that began appearing in August.

Energage then surveyed 55,253 metro Atlanta employees and compiled a list of 175 companies that merited recognition as Top Workplaces based on the employee survey feedback. The breakdown is as follows:

  • Top 19 Large (500 or more employees in the region)
  • Top 70 Midsize (150-499 employees in the region)
  • Top 86 Small (149 or fewer employees in the region)

After the survey was completed, Energage ran a series of statistical sets to look for questionable results to see if disqualifications were needed. Energage also determined a list of special awards based on standout scores on specific survey statements.
