‘Management Top 250’

Companies are analysed on the basis of their performance in five key areas: customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility, and financial strength. To prepare the ranking, a total of 34 data inputs are provided by 14 third-party sources; a firm is excluded from the study if there are less than two data inputs for any of the five areas.

In calculating the final score, none of the aspects is considered to be more important than the other four.
