DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL — The Denver Business Journal revealed which companies were metro Denver’s Best Places to Work for 2018 at an awards celebration Wednesday night at The Hangar at Stanley Marketplace in Aurora, where about 250 revelers rode a mechanical bull, played pool and pingpong, and feasted on freshly-baked pizza and other savory delights.

The awards highlight companies in the Denver area whose operations are providing the top workplace environment and engaging their teams. And there's no better judges to determine which companies rise to the top than the people who know them best: their employees.

Employees for each nominated company were asked to complete the Quantum Workplace employee engagement survey. The survey measures 10 key engagement categories focusing on items including team effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits. In order to gather statistically sound results, companies must reach a minimum level of employee participation, based on total number of employees, to be eligible to be named a finalist.
