The anonymous surveys were conducted by a third party to encourage employees to be candid when responding to statements such as "I have confidence in the leader of this organization", "My manager listens to me," and "My pay is fair for the work I do." To further ensure integrity of survey responses, employee participation was voluntary.
Fully 90% of all MSS employees chose to participate - one of the highest response rates of all employers surveyed. The average response across all companies was only 56% according to the Inquirer. MSS employees listed a number of reasons for loving their workplace, including their “passion for excellent customer service,” “(the) great benefits,” “flexibility to balance work and personal life,” and MSS’ status as “best in our industry.” One respondent stated:
