The HR100

For nearly twenty years, HRO Today Magazine has produced the Baker’s Dozen. Thousands of respondents provide unbiased information and insights into their use of outsourced services and their satisfaction with their service provider.

In fact, 70% of HRO Today readers reference the Baker’s Dozen customer satisfaction rankings when in an RFP/provider selection process, and that 80% say that a ranking on the HRO Today Baker’s Dozen lists influenced their decision when selecting a provider.

Now, HRO Today is excited to offer the HR100. The HRO Today HR100 is the rank order and scores of the 100 companies that performed best in seven core areas: workplace culture, employee benefits, diversity and inclusion, employee development and talent management, human resources innovation, leadership development, and talent acquisition. The working assumption behind the list is that high performance in these core categories provides a reasonable proxy for overall HR excellence.


To create the ranking, the HRO Today research team collected available public data from a representative list of 23 established benchmarking and ranking programs in the identified categories. This allows researchers to generate a score based equally on the depth and breadth of outside recognition and internal recognition.

To generate the score, researchers examine the number of lists identified a particular company appears on and their relative ranking where appropriate., This information is then combined and weighted to create the final score, which produces the ranking.
