Methodology

How We Selected the Winning Companies

To determine the Best Workplaces for Millennials, Great Place to Work surveyed over 398,000 U.S. employees from Great Place to Work-Certified companies and ranked companies based on three factors:

1. 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, and great colleagues.

2. 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.

3. 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.

Build-A-Bear Workshop

Employees say:

 

“The most amazing thing about working at Build-A-Bear is the customers. It is so touching to know that what we do impacts their lives. I helped a grandmother memorialize her granddaughter by putting a recording of her heartbeat inside [a toy bear]. At the end of the experience, the grandmother gave me a huge hug and thanked me for making it so special. This is just one of many stories.”

 

“When I began working here, I felt an immediate sense of acceptance, which I have never felt anywhere else. We are all truly a team and a family and that’s a rare thing to find in our business. Everyone is so supportive of each other and it’s a very safe feeling; even our mistakes are accepted, and we all help each other to improve. It’s just plain fun and I always look forward to coming in.”
