The Kids Are All Right: Millennials More Engaged at Work, says Aon Hewitt’s 15th Annual 50 Best Employers in Canada Study

“Aon Hewitt, the global human resource solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE:AON), today released its annual list of Best Employers in Canada. The 50 Best Employers are selected from participants in the Best Employers in Canada Study. This 15th edition, based on data from nearly 280,000 employee and leader surveys from 282 participating private- and public-sector organizations, identifies 15 companies that have made the mark as Best Employers for 10 or more years. And it reveals that so-called Millennials – the generation entering the workplace after 2000 who have often been characterized as self-interested, difficult employees – are becoming more engaged the longer they are in the workforce.

The primary requirement for being recognized as a Best Employer is creating and sustaining a highly engaged workforce, measured by asking employees at participating organizations directly through a survey. According to Aon Hewitt’s definition, employees are engaged when they “say, stay and strive”: they speak positively about their employer to others, are committed to staying with their current employer, and are motivated by their organizations’ leaders, managers, culture and values to go “above and beyond” to contribute to business success. The survey also measures how well organizations perform in six key areas: Leadership Excellence, Manager Effectiveness, Enabling Productivity (how well organizations equip employees to do their jobs), Growth & Development, Valuing & Appreciating Employees, and Overall Employee Experience. This year, average employee engagement was 78 percent at Best Employers, roughly on par with last year’s 79 percent. (The average for other participants was 58 percent.)”
