Methodology for 20 Best Workplaces for Gen X’ers

Rankings for the 20 Best Workplaces for Gen Xers 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 more than 109,000 Gen Xers (born between 1965 and 1980), who rated their organizations on 58 workplace quality questions. Employees considered advancement opportunities, generosity of benefits packages, genuineness of work-life balance support, connection with their colleagues, and the ability to make a difference in their work, among many other factors.

Gen X employees’ 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 GenX staff and achieve a 95% confidence level and margin of error of 5% or less in order to be eligible.
