Winners are selected in a four-step process that involves asking a firm’s contacts — clients and candidates — how likely they are to recommend the firm to a friend or colleague. This Net Promoter Score is supplemented by two additional questions, which help the agency to identify why the respondent gave it the rating, and what the agency could do to improve.

Agencies pay to participate.
