The magazine is honoring 85 companies this year. Here's who.

For the eighth year, Columbus CEO is celebrating the Top Workplaces in the Columbus region. The annual program, in partnership with Exton, Pennsylvania-based Energage, surveys employees to discern their attitudes and experiences in the workplace. The top-scoring employers are named Top Workplaces in three categories—small, medium and large. 

Find out who won in the gallery attached to this story, which counts down to the highest-ranking company in each category.

For the 2020 list, a record 131 employers agreed to take the survey, which was conducted last summer and fall. Combined, they employ 33,645 people in the region. Of those employees who received questionnaires, 21,344 responded, either on paper or online. Here's more on the program's methodology.

For this year’s winners list, 85 Columbus-area employers were ranked based on their employee survey feedback.
