The survey is conducted using a qualitative method in Estonian and English. The main focus of the study is to find out who are the most attractive and popular employers in Estonia. In addition, it examines who are the top employers in different business sectors. TOP50 employers are determined by a majority of votes.
All survey participants are asked to name the best employer who they want to work for. TOP50 employers are determined by the number of votes collected. The question is mandatory for all respondents. Additional questions are asked of respondents in the following business areas: finance; trade; production; IT and telecommunications; transport and logistics; and service sector.
The respondent can add employers to the TOP50 list themselves, regardless of the field in which the organization operates, the number of employees, or based on other criteria. The main principle is the “top of mind” principle, i.e. what the respondent first remembers. When answering the questions, the survey environment offers a drop-down menu with organizations' names, but the respondents also have the opportunity to write down their own choice if it is not available in the drop-down menu. Companies that already exist in the drop-down menu have been selected on the basis of the following criteria: companies with the highest turnover in 2021 (up to TOP 500), with at least 50 employees; the main field of activity of the organizations coincides with those proposed in the study. The structure of the company must meet both criteria (50 employees, field of activity). The pre-menu presents all categories of companies based on the above criteria.
