Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have named Continued as one of the 2021 Best Workplaces for Millennials™. This is Continued’s first time to be named to this prestigious list, coming in at 33 out of 100 small and medium-sized companies featured.
The Best Workplaces for Millennials award is based on an analysis of survey responses from more than 5.3 million current employees. In that survey, 99% of Continued’s team members said the company is a great place to work, as compared to 59% of employees at a typical US-based company.
“The Continued family is honored to receive this designation, which is a testament to our extraordinary team and the culture we have built together,” said CEO Tony Perlak. “I am so proud of our team members for the work they do and even more importantly for the ways we care for each other and our members and partners.”
Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the Best Workplaces for Millennials list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.
Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
“Throughout the organization, we prioritize culture and attribute the organization’s success to this philosophy,” said Asher Primrose, HR Director and 2020 For All Leader recipient. “We celebrate our dedicated, talented team members who made us part of this list today and who make this such a special place to work every day.”
As a 100% virtual organization since its inception, Continued has prioritized workplace culture since day one. In recent years, Continued has enhanced its culture in many ways, including: a robust wellness program with an annual stipend; health coaching; a company-provided fitness tracker; diversity initiatives; “best in class” channels to connect in a virtual environment; flexible holidays and paid time off programs; a company book club; and charitable gift matching.
“The Best Workplaces for Millennials™ treat their employees like people, not just employees,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “These companies foster caring and respect for one another at every level of the organization. The result is millennial employees who say they look forward to coming to work and—as our research says—are 50 times more likely to stay a long time.”
