Methodology

Rankings for the 20 Best Workplaces for Baby Boomers are based entirely upon employees' own feedback and selected from a database of more than 600 organizations that have been certified by Great Place to Work.

To determine the list, Fortune asked Great Place to Work to survey nearly 34,000 Baby Boomers (born between 1946 and 1964), who rated their organizations on 58 workplace quality questions. Employees considered managers' competence and business ethics, people's advancement opportunities, impact of their organizations on the community and the pride their colleagues take in their work among many other factors.

Baby Boomers' anonymous responses resulted in a total score for each company, which was compared to the benchmark for organizations of that size. Companies needed to employ at least 50 Baby Boomers and achieve a 95% confidence level and margin of error of 5% or less in order to be eligible.

Michigan-based auto financing company Credit Acceptance appears at No. 1, followed by David Weekley Homes and Workday.

Acorda Therapeutics

“At Acorda you are given the opportunity to soar as high as you desire and are willing to go,” says one baby boomer at this biotech company. “That said, there is an unusually high bar of expectancy from each and every employee regardless of their position, title or responsibilities. It is a healthy competitive work environment with a minimum of inner office politics. The pace is extremely fast, different challenges and opportunities to excel at every day resulting in tremendous rewards and a great sense of accomplishment and pride every evening when one goes home to family. And while we are one family, at Acorda there is a terrific sense and practice of work/life balance. This is a very family friendly environment.”

 

Acorda Therapeutics also appears at No. 86 on the list of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials.
