We recently sent out a communication regarding changes to the 100 Best Corporate Citizens ratings list, specifically data verification. In order to answer any questions participating companies may have about these changes, we will be hosting a short webinar to explain in more detail and address some of your questions.
Interest in the CR 100 Best program is at an all-time high. Companies are producing more and more data about their activities–data that we need to produce the 100 Best ratings. In fact, the amount has increased 15-20% each year for the past five years. Because of the sheer volume of information that we are collecting, there will be a nominal processing fee of $295 to cover the administrative costs of gathering, verifying and analyzing the data and producing the ratings. Please note that paying the fee will not impact individual company ratings, either by being included in the CR 100 Best or a company’s actual rank. In the spirit of disclosure, a notation will be made in the listing for any company that has any kind of financial relationship with SharedXpertise, CRA or CR Magazine. This includes paying the processing fee.
The data verification must be received by February 19, 2016. This is also the cutoff date for data verification correspondence. All companies that pay the processing fee can request a three-year trending report of the data elements and have the opportunity to discuss the results with CR Magazine.
