Fortune Names Return Path a Best Place to Work for Millennials

I have always known the potential of a workplace where people feel valued and empowered, where autonomy and innovation are encouraged, and where support is provided every step of the way. Return Path has seen remarkable employee performance and success because we make these values a priority. It turns out, they are also important to a major segment of the workforce—millennials. Because of these shared values, Return Path is especially honored to make Fortune’s inaugural list of 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials.

Using Great Place to Work survey data gathered from our employees, Fortune selected Return Path as a top employer of millennials because of our emphasis on employee development, openness, and transparency. This isn’t the first time employee feedback has won Return Path recognition. Last year, Fortune ranked Return Path No. 2 in its 25 Best Medium-Sized Companies to Work For list.

The millennials we’ve hired have been instrumental in turning Return Path into the company it is today. They are some of the most creative and hardest-working people I know. With such incredible talent, drive, and diversity, it’s no coincidence that millennials make up almost half of Return Path’s employee base.

But trying to find top talent from the largest generation in the US workforce isn’t easy. So how are we attracting millennials?

Return Path already met many of the criteria millennials use when looking for an employer. It comes naturally from our people-first philosophy of embracing transparency, open communication, and collaboration. Both millennials and Return Path believe in an environment where employees are free to engage in honest, two-way conversations with their peers, managers, and senior leaders. We operate on trust, respect, and, of course, a lot of fun.

But it’s not just about company outings and on-site massages. We strive to turn our employees into leaders and provide them with the tools they need to become experts at their jobs. We offer training, mentoring, and development programs that create extraordinary workers. Our detailed career-pathing gives employees a roadmap to a successful career within the company, even if they want to switch specialties entirely.

We also encourage our colleagues to be leaders in their communities—an important value for many millennials. With our company-sanctioned volunteer days and Dream Fund program, we embolden our employees to make a difference.
