The two-part process called for the library to provide information regarding workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics and then asked each employee to complete a brief online survey that measured employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking, announced in May 2014. The survey was completed by 86% of library staff, including full-time and part-time workers. At the time, the library had 112 employees.
