Making the List
Rankings for the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials are based entirely upon employees' own feedback.
To determine the list, Fortune asked Great Place to Work, a global research and consulting firm, to survey more than 88,000 millennials (born 1981 or later), who rated their organizations on 58 workplace quality questions. Employees considered the sincerity of managers' support for people's personal and professional lives, how transparent communication is, people's ability to be themselves at work and to invest in their lives outside work, and the meaning they get from their jobs, among many other factors. Millennials' 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 millennials and achieve a 95% confidence level and margin of error of 5% or less in order to be eligible.
Earlier this year, Protiviti was recognized on Glassdoor’s 2016 list of the 50 Best Places to Work and was also named to the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list in both 2016 and 2015. See the complete list of all 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials.
