More than 434,000 survey respondents from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies provided input into this year’s Best Workplaces for Millennials list. Employees throughout each organization were randomly invited to participate in the survey, which is designed to reveal whether it is consistently a great place to work all employees, regardless of their personal background or position within the company. Great Place to Work® analyzed each organization’s performance in several areas, including:
Key Great Place to Work Metrics. We analyzed how positively Millennials rated their organizations on over 50 different metrics defining great workplaces, such as managers' competence, respect and fairness in the workplace, opportunities for meaningful work, how effectively executives lead the organization, and whether the company gives everyone an opportunity to innovate and contribute to the organization’s success.
Comparison to Other Generations. We compared Millennials' survey results to their colleagues' to ensure Millennials had as positive an experience as people of other generations. Specifically, we looked at an index of factors where Millennials often lag their peers, such as access to meaningful work, fair pay, and plans for a future with their organizations.
A Consistent Experience within a Diverse Group. We also analyzed demographic patterns to ensure that companies were creating great workplaces for all Millennials, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization.
Surveys were conducted anonymously and Millennials' results achieved at least a 95% confidence level, 7% margin of error for each organization. Companies needed to employ at least 50 Millennials to be considered.
