You’ve no doubt heard some of the bad things about Millennial-age workers…. how they are very talented, but ready to quit their job at the drop of the hat for greener pastures should a better offer come along.
In today’s fast-paced, competitive, global economy, companies need as many talented workers as they can find. So how can today’s businesses hang on to outstanding young talent? There is good news: Millennials, it turns out, ARE willing to stay IF it’s a great place to work at.
“At the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials, 88% of younger employees say they plan to stay long-term. These employees were also nearly 3 times as likely to be engaged at work, compared to other age and demographic groups.
“In other words, these employers have cracked the code on how to retain Millennials,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work in announcing the release of the global people analytics and consulting firm’s annual ranking of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Millennials, in partnership with FORTUNE. (The list appears later in this post.)
