Royal Caribbean has announced that it has been named to the Forbes List of Best Large Employers for 2017. Forbes surveyed employees at mid-size and large companies or institutions. Respondents at those companies were asked to rate their employer on the quality of the work environment and whether they would recommend their company to potential employees as one of the most important factors in the assessment.
America's Best Employers are chosen by Forbes based on an independent survey from a sample of 30,000 American employees working for large or mid-size companies. The employees responded anonymously through several online panels so they could openly state an opinion without influence from their employer. The survey was conducted on companies from all industry sectors employing more than 1,000 employees in the United States.
