New Belgium Named One of the Best Places for Millennial Employees


Ft. Collins, Colo. – New Belgium Brewing has been named one of the best places to work for millennial employees in America. The list, which comes on the heels of the news that millennials are now thelargest workforce in America, is the first of its kind to identify companies that excel at recruiting, developing and retaining top millennial performers.

“We have always been a values-driven company and that resonates with millennials,” said Bryan Simpson, New Belgium spokes model. “We are 100% employee-owned, have an open-book management policy and actively give back. We also celebrate the unique qualities of each employee, unlocking the potential for great things to happen. This mixture creates a culture that attracts and retains some awesome people, especially among millennials.”

To find the best places to work for Millennials, The Center for Generational Kinetics partnered with the workplace excellence research firm Best Companies Group (BCG), which manages more than 50 “Best Places to Work” programs around the globe. BCG analyzed data from more than 4,000 U.S. organizations that participated in BCG’s various programs.
