Both Electronic Arts & The Sims Team have revealed to their respective followers that Maxis was one of two winners for GamesIndustry.biz‘s “Best Place to Work 2022” award!
How are the winner(s) chosen?
Every employee — excluding the senior management team — is given a chance to fill in this survey. We know, however, that not everyone will. As a result, we have a sliding scale of requirements in terms of how many employees we need to have filled in the survey. For large companies (250+), we need around a third of all employees to fill in the form. For mid-sized companies (75+), it’s between 50 – 60%. And for small companies (30+), it is 90%. For very small teams (10 – 29), we require a 100% response rate. The scale is more fluid than that, but this should give you a good indicator of what we expect.
Companies have had to duck out of the awards because not enough staff filled in the forms. However, we do try and make sure this doesn’t happen by keeping employers updated on their response rate.
Each response carries a points score. A ‘Strongly Disagree’ will net the company 0 points, while a ‘Strongly Agree’ nets a company 3 points. At the end of the process, we tally the scores up and see what the total is.
This survey is worth 80% of the final score.gamesindustry.biz
