The ranking of Poland's Best Employers 2022 by Forbes was created on the same basis as similar ones in Western Europe or the American Forbes. Employers were surveyed by Statista, the co-creator of the best known 'Best Employers' rankings in the world.

The basis of the survey was a list of about 1800 employers with at least 250 employees in Poland. Over 20 thousand employees took part in the survey. Respondents were asked to express their opinion on several dozen statements describing their employer's activities in seven main areas:

  • Image and growth
  • Development and outlook
  • Employee relations and management
  • Salary
  • Working conditions and equipment
  • Sustainability
  • Workload

The survey ran from September to October 2021.
