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.

Employees say:


“ESL looks for every possible opportunity to please both its members and its employees. I am personally astonished at the career opportunities that have been presented to each and every employee. I have known many people to be happily promoted to positions that they have applied for. I have only been working at ESL for 10 months and already, I have been promoted from a Teller to a Member service representative. I could not be happier about the amount of training that ESL puts into each position as well. ESL really wants its employees to succeed in what they do and they makes sure they provide the necessary tools. We are regularly rewarded for our hard work by receiving bonuses every quarter of the year, as well as one large bonus every year if we meet the goals given to us.”


“I have only worked for two companies. ESL has been the most inspiring and nurturing place not only for growth in my work life, but everyday life as a whole. I have learned so much from the people in my branch as well as other departments. I am valued as a part of my team and encouraged to grow in the company. The overall feeling that you receive from other employees and customers gives you so much gratification in your job and makes you strive to be the best that you can each and every day!”
