Build-A-Bear Workshop® Secures Spot on FORTUNE’s Best Workplaces for Millennials list for Fourth Consecutive Year
ST. LOUIS (June 26, 2018) – For the fourth year running, Build-A-Bear Workshop® has been named to the Best Workplaces for Millennials list, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE.
Build-A-Bear ranked No. 87 on the 2018 list, which is based on employee responses to over 50 different metrics defining great workplaces, such as managers' competence, respect and fairness in the workplace, opportunities for meaningful work, how effectively executives lead the organization, and whether the company gives everyone an opportunity to innovate and contribute to the organization’s success. The evaluation compared Millennials' survey results to their colleagues' of other generations, specifically reviewing factors where Millennials often lag their peers, such as access to meaningful work, fair pay, and plans for a future with their organizations.
“Our Millennial associates tend to both recognize and appreciate the opportunities we provide and efforts we make to stay true to the Build-A-Bear mission of adding a little more heart to life,” said Sharon Price John, president and chief executive officer, Build-A-Bear Workshop. “More than half of our U.S. associates are Millennials, which speaks to how they connect with our mission and believe that there is a greater good that Build-A-Bear is focused on, in addition to the opportunities they see for their career at the company.”
The Best Workplaces for Millennials stand out for their unique, innovative cultures, which helps them attract and retain Millennial employees. This list is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.
