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:   “Aim higher, make it better” is one of our mottos. As employees we are held accountable, but allowed freedom when need be. I used to think I always had to “separate work from play.”   “I think the work environment set up at ezCater is unique because the executives actually execute the […]

Employees say:


“It’s incredibly atypical for an organization of this size to have such a high-trust environment and be able to sustain it. There is a mentality that ‘we didn’t hire smart people to tell them exactly what to do’ I so appreciate.”


“The lights in the building are on a timer that goes off at 6pm, which I have always found to be so incredible. At my previous job at a major tech company, 6pm was what 3 or 4pm here is and the auto-shut off happened at 8:30pm. If I’m ever working late, I’m always so encouraged when those lights go off at 6pm because it feels like Workday as a whole is reminding me that its time to leave–reiterating the importance of work-life balance and ensuring I’m not burning out. I think that small action of a self-timed light panel has made such a massive impact on my perception of this company and how it cares for its employees.”
