Methodology for 75 Best Large and 25 Best Small and Medium Workplaces for Millennials

To determine the Best Workplaces for Millennials, Great Place to Work® analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing more than 4.5 million people. 

Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what millennials say about their experiences of trust and ability to reach their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do. Great Place to Work compares millennials’ feedback to that of their colleagues and analyzes whether different personal and professional identities among millennials changes their workplace experience — or whether every employee does indeed have an opportunity to achieve their full potential. Great Place to Work analyzes survey feedback relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical relative to their peers in the industry. 

The remaining 15 percent of the rank is based on millennials’ feedback of their daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced as well. 

To be considered, companies had to meet the Great Place to Work-Certified standard and employ at least 50 millennials. To ensure survey results are truly representative, Great Place to Work requires that Trust Index© survey results are accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error or better. We review any anomalies in survey responses, news and financial performance to ensure there aren’t any extraordinary reasons to believe we couldn’t trust a company’s survey results. Companies with 10 to 999 people were considered for the small and medium category and companies with 1,000 employees we considered for the large category.
