SEL named a best place to work for millennials and boomers
PULLMAN, Washington—June 30, 2016—Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories made Fortune’s list of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials and the 20 Best Workplaces for Baby Boomers. The 100 percent employee-owned U.S. manufacturer of power system technology also made Fortune’s 15 Best Workplaces in Manufacturing and Production list earlier in the year.
SEL received consistently high rankings—93 percent average—in multiple areas, including management, professional development and training, company atmosphere, benefits and rewards.
“SEL has possibilities to grow and learn as long as you are motivated and dedicated to learning new tasks/roles. SEL makes you feel like they want you to succeed and grow,” wrote a millennial employee.
The Fortune rankings are compiled by the Great Place to Work Institute, a global research and training firm. The ranking of workplaces for millennials is based on feedback from 88,000 employees born in 1981 or later, and the baby boomers ranking is based on feedback from 34,000 employees aged 51 and above. More than 600 companies were surveyed.
“[SEL] is all about delivering the best quality of products and services to customers, and about being the best employer. I could go on forever. I am very proud of this company,” said a baby boomer employee at Schweitzer.
Millennials make up 46 percent of SEL’s workforce, while baby boomers compose 14 percent.
