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:


“The bonus structure at Hilcorp is, quite frankly, incredible. Quarterly, semi-annual and annual bonuses are just a small part of the extensive compensation package Hilcorp offers its employees. There is a buy-in program that allows Hilcorp employees to invest in different oil fields that the company owns to help perpetuate the ‘ownership’ mentality that our leadership works to instill in each of us. Its volunteer initiative, The Hilcorp Giving Program, contributes real and meaningful change to our society through home-building projects for the less fortunate and disenfranchised, and Hilcorp provides a generous allowance that each employee is allowed to donate to a charity of their choice. Lastly, we are working in a state-of-the-art beautiful building in the heart of Houston that makes each of us proud to be an employee here each time we step through that door. We are truly blessed to work here.”


“Because we have a strong cultural core, and trust each other to work toward a common goal, when times are tough the different groups pull together. I’m so proud that we can band together as a company to weather the hard times and still care for one another and grow the business. We reiterate our goals and work together to get the job done—safely, fairly, and intelligently.”
