3M Tops Google As Top Workplace For Millennials

3M Tops Google For Top Workplace For MillennialsCongratulations to our vendor partner 3M for beating out Google to claim the top spot in a national survey of millennials as the most preferred potential workplace.

The survey findings show that millennials seek out the same values in the workplace that we subscribe to here at Office Essentials: fair treatment, corporate social responsibility and strong company benefits, which include flexible work schedules. It’s exciting to see that a partner we work with everyday — actually 3, Microsoft and Samsung made the list as well — is being recognized as a leader in promoting these values to the next generation of workers.

The National Society of High School Scholars surveyed 13,000 students and young professionals between the ages of 15 to 32, and according to Minnesota’s Star-Tribune newspaper, 3M CEO Inge Thulin said younger employees and applicants have noted 3M’s sustainability projects and its three-to-12-month leadership development program. In addition, 3M has a commitment to geographic, linguistic and ethnic diversity. 3M’s top management represents many races and countries from around the world.

Office Essentials actually has three vendor partners in the listing, noted in bold below. Congratulations to all of them.
