Great Place to Work® and Fortune Name Arthrex as One of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials in the US
Arthrex is honored to announce Great Place to Work® and Fortune have recognized the company as one of the 100 Best Workplaces For Millennials in the country. Millennials are considered the generation that is currently in the 18 to early 30s age range.
The 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials is part of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based entirely on employee surveys from published Great Place to Work® Reviews.
It’s estimated that in just 10 years, millennials will make up 75 percent of the workforce. To compete for top talent and ensure their long-term success, businesses must prepare to appeal to and engage this unique generation of employees. Arthrex is proud to support educative programs with schools and organizations in the community that provide our young minds and future workforce with positive experiences to learn and grow. As part of this commitment, we also offer an internship and co-op program during the summer to give students the opportunity to gain valuable practical experience and enhance their professional development. An internship is a temporary position with an emphasis on on-the-job training rather than merely employment, and a co-op is a type of internship program that enables college students to receive career training with pay as they work with professionals in their major fields of study.
Kristin Bartlett, Digital Communications Associate, transitioned to a full-time employee last year, following a year-long internship with the Communications team in the Marketing Department. "Sometimes I still think of how lucky I am to have been an intern here at Arthrex," said Kristin. "This experience has provided me with the ability to learn new skills, meet wonderful mentors and friends, and build the foundation for my future."
Hayley Wonka, Associate Employee Relations Specialist, also transitioned to full-time employment last summer after a six-month internship with Human Resources. Her story is unique in that she was studying biology at Ave Maria University. "Even though my background was in biology, HR truly struck my interest during this internship experience," Hayley said. "I gained valuable training from my supervisor and other team members within the company and received positive feedback about pursuing a career in HR. I believe that hard work and an open mind to try new things will lead to amazing opportunities, and I am truly thankful to be part of such a great company."
Arthrex considers this honor to be exceptionally notable because it realizes just how closely the well-being of our employees relates to the company's long-term success in Helping Surgeons Treat Their Patients Better™.
“Companies focused on solid growth understand that it’s critical for senior leaders to have an in-depth understanding of all their employees’ experiences, regardless of their age, role in the organization, or any other demographic profile,” says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work® United States. “Great workplaces are constantly monitoring and analyzing their employees’ workplace experiences and then taking action to improve them. Ranking on this list is a great indicator that these companies’ efforts to create great workplaces are resonating with millennials.”
As Arthrex continues to grow and expand, the internship and co-op program is a great way to evaluate prospective employees for future positions. To read Arthrex's full Great Place to Work® Review, click here.
