Companies from across the United States and Canada entered the two-part survey process to determine the Plastics News’ Best Places to Work. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined
scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

Plastics News honored all the winners and revealed the final rankings in a special ceremony at The Executive Forum on February 16 at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club in Florida.

The actual rankings will be published on March 21, 2016, by Plastics News.
