O.C. Tanner Named One of the Country's Best Workplaces for Millennials
SALT LAKE CITY — June 28, 2016 —
O.C. Tanner, the world’s leading employee recognition company, is proud to announce that consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune have named it one of the country's 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials in 2016.
O.C. Tanner earned a place on this list based on Millennial team members' responses to anonymous survey questions asking about the levels of trust, pride and camaraderie they experience in the workplace.
“O.C. Tanner has long been a place where people of all ages, backgrounds, skills, and experience work together to accomplish great things,” said Dave Petersen, CEO of O.C. Tanner. “We are very pleased to know that our Millennial colleagues realize their work matters here, and that they enjoy our culture and purpose. They play a significant role in our future.”
“I think our (Millennial) generation ultimately wants to do something that makes a difference and we want to be recognized for doing just that,” said Ana Bentz, copywriter at O.C. Tanner. “Working here, I think that’s exactly what you get! You are helping to make sure that employees around the world are being recognized and appreciated for their hard work and that, in the long run, can make a huge difference in someone’s life.”
The 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials list was published by Great Place to Work® and Fortune in conjunction with two related lists—the 20 Best Workplaces for Gen X and the 20 Best Workplaces for Baby Boomers.
“There are more similarities than differences when it comes to what different generations want in a great workplace,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Our research shows that company pride, a sense of community and competent, ethical leadership can bring Millennials, Gen Xers and Baby Boomers together for a great, high-performing workplace.”
The 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work®-certified organizations.
O.C. Tanner was also named to the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list in March 2016 for the second year in a row.

About the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials
The 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials ranking is based entirely upon employees' own feedback and winners are selected from a database of some 620 Great Place to Work®-Certified organizations. To determine the list, Fortune asked Great Place to Work® 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.
