A group of West Michigan companies have been named to Forbes’ ranking of “America’s Best Employers.”

The 500-spot ranking is for the large companies with more than 5,000 U.S. employees.

Forbes said this month it partnered with the market research company Statista to complete the 2018 study.

As part of the study, Statista surveyed 30,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. All the surveys were anonymous.

The respondents were asked to rate, on a scale of zero to 10, how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others.

Respondents were also asked to nominate organizations in other industries.
