Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to determine the rankings by surveying 40,000 Americans, including 25,000 women, working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. Respondents anonymously rated their organizations on criteria such as working conditions, diversity and how likely they would be to recommend their employer to others. The final list ranks the 300 employers receiving the most recommendations as well as having the most gender-diverse boards and executive ranks, with Cognizant at No. 74.  See the full rankings here.
