Six Kansas City-area companies made the cut for Forbes’ annual ranking of America’s Best Large Employers.

The ranking is based on a survey of about 45,000 workers at U.S. companies and institutions with 5,000 or more employees, Forbes said. Its survey asked how strongly employees would recommend their company.

Five-hundred employers made the cut, including these local companies:

  • No 54. The University of Kansas Health System (Kansas City, Kansas)
  • No 78. Hallmark Cards Inc. (Kansas City)
  • No 208. H&R Block Inc. (Kansas City)
  • No 305: Burns & McDonnell (Kansas City)
  • No 347. AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. (Leawood)
  • No 404. Cerner Corp. (now Oracle Cerner) (Kansas City)
