To determine America’s Best Startup Employers 2023, Statista identified more than 2,600 U.S-based companies with at least 50 employees that were founded between 2013 and 2020. All companies considered were started from scratch and were not spun out of existing enterprises. Statista evaluated each organization based on three criteria: employer reputation, employee satisfaction and growth. To assess employer reputation, Statista searched articles, blogs and social media posts regarding each employer for specific phrases such as “corporate culture” and “employee engagement,” and used text analysis to assess those as positive, negative or neutral. Statista assessed employee satisfaction by evaluating online reviews. Growth was evaluated by examining the organizations’ website traffic and head counts over a two-year period.
