These included trust in leadership, respect in the workplace, fairness of workplace decisions, and level of camaraderie. The Best Workplaces for Millennials award is based on analysis of the survey responses.
Fortune reported that gender equity is a key value point for many millennials in the workplace, and BHG’s focus on professional development can be credited for its high gender equity. In Q1 2021, BHG had over 80 promotions across the organization, of which 49% were female. The company’s leadership team is 40% women, compared to the national average of 21%. Fortune also noted millennials’ interest in workplace trust and flexibility. While BHG prioritizes all employee growth and celebrates milestones, the company embraces a flexible approach that favors individual contributions over set promotion timelines. Also, after a year of working from home, BHG continues to give employees the option to work remotely and provides new employees with a home-office stipend.
