The Philippine Daily Inquirer and Statista went through an extensive process to come up with The Philippines’ Best Employers for 2023. The list is the culmination of a vast and comprehensive research project that covered tens of thousands of evaluations, the opinions of thousands of employees, and the scores for hundreds of companies.

Ateneo de Davao University was ranked 32 in the country’s Best Employers list, which places it 2nd in the Employer in Education category, right after De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde. The University of Santo Tomas was ranked 37, placing it 3rd in the Employer in Education category.

Every company employing at least 250 people in the Philippines is considered eligible for the ranking. Statista pre-researched an initial list of over 2,000 eligible employers via industry lists, employer databases, and desk research. In addition, a registration form was published prior to the survey that allowed companies to register for the employee survey. 

Based on the respondents’ evaluations, employers received a total score. The total score was calculated based on the direct and indirect recommendations, with a greater weight given to the direct recommendations (i.e. willingness of the participants to recommend their own employer). 

Finally, employers were ranked by their total score. Scores can theoretically reach a maximum of 10 and a minimum of 0. Companies’ scores within the ranking lie between 9,37 and 7,86. The scores of the 300 awarded companies constitute the best 9% of eligible companies in the basic list.
