"Creating an entrepreneurial culture is a key priority for business leaders, yet no one until now has really assessed the role culture plays in success," says Ray Hennessey, editorial director of Entrepreneur.com. "This ranking celebrates the dedication that all teams, from entry-level to the C-suite, have in ensuring they are creating vibrant, healthy and sustainable work environments.

The full list, presenting a total of 75 companies categorized as small, medium-sized or large companies--25-49 employees, 50-99 employees and more than 100 employees-- is available on Entrepreneur.com.

"I find it particularly inspiring to see a wide variety of companies represented in the list, confirming that you can have a strong culture regardless of industry, size, or business maturity."
The rankings for all companies were determined using CultureIQ's methodology for measuring high-performance cultures. Employees at each company received a survey of 21 short, multiple-choice questions. The answers were used to assess a company's strength across 10 core qualities of culture - performance focus, support and innovation, to name a few. These quality strength scores were combined with the employee Net Promoter Score to create a cumulative CultureIQ Score. The companies with the highest CultureIQ Scores became the Top Company Culture list in ranking order. To be considered for the ranking, a company must have at least 25 employees, have been founded before Jan. 1, 2014 and be headquartered in the U.S.
