ARI has been named for the second year in a row to the 100 Best Workplaces For Millennials listing released by Fortune magazine and the Great Place to Work Institute.
The company earned a place on this year's list based on the responses given by ARI's millennial employees to anonymous survey questions about the levels of trust, pride and camaraderie they experience in the workplace, according to the fleet management company.
"We are very proud to be recognized as a workplace where millennials feel they can develop, learn and grow professionally," said Chris Conroy, ARI's president. "Our leadership is aware of the value and perspective that millennials bring to the workforce, and we proactively work to develop a culture where they are given opportunities to contribute and collaborate. We also continuously seek out ways to engage and acknowledge them, so they know that the work they do from day to day has meaning and an impact on the overall health of the company."
Rankings for the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials are based on employee feedback. To determine the list, Fortune asked Great Place to Work to survey more than 88,000 millennials (born in 1981 or later), who were asked to rate 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. The 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.
"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."
ARI has also been recognized as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For by the Great Place to Work Institute and Fortune for the past four years.
