CHESTER, Pa., June 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Power Home Remodeling, the nation's second largest exterior home remodeler, has once again been named one of the top 10 companies in the country on Fortune's 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials in 2016. Based on surveys of more than 88,000 millennials at more than 600 companies, Power earned the No. 6 spot on the second annual list for its stimulating culture, supportive and positive environment and personal growth opportunities for its employees.
"At Power we firmly believe that the ability to attract and retain mission-driven millennials directly impacts our success. Quite simply, our people are our secret weapon," said Asher Raphael, Power's Co-Chief Executive Officer. "With millennials comprising more than 86 percent of Power's current employee base, I know firsthand what motivates and drives them — they aren't just financially ambitious but are also looking to join an organization where they can make an impact on the world. We remain committed to delivering a culture that gives them something to believe in and where they can have a sense of purpose in everything they do and be the best version of themselves."
Power continues to be nationally recognized as a top workplace in the country, demonstrated by several recent rankings, including Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For in the U.S., Fortune's No. 1 Best Workplace for Camaraderie, and earlier this month, Power's Co-CEOs held the No. 25 spot on Glassdoor's Highest Rated CEO list for the second consecutive year.
Power employees are provided with ongoing opportunities for growth in the form of leadership conferences across the country, frequent opportunities to meet and socialize with senior leadership and a personal mentor to help guide them to achieve more. Power's inclusive social program filled with can't-miss events and an annual company-paid trip to Mexico also gives employees a chance to develop a lasting camaraderie with their colleagues to bring their experience full circle. Already in 2016, employees heard from Wayne Gretzky at a recent leadership conference and attended the NCAA Final Four. Additionally, as a further testament to Power's commitment to millennials, the company recently launched the Power Veterans Initiative — a one-of-its-kind program that provides hundreds of job opportunities specifically for millennial military veterans returning home with a focus to change the national veteran narrative from one of distress to one of pride by spotlighting veterans' leadership skills and commitment to a shared mission.
"There are more similarities than differences when it comes to what different generations want in a great workplace," says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. "Our research shows that company pride, a sense of community and competent, ethical leadership can bring Millennials, Gen Xers and Baby Boomers together for a great, high-performing workplace."

About the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials
The 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials ranking is based entirely upon employees' own feedback and winners are selected from a database of some 620 Great Place to Work®-Certified organizations. To determine the list, Fortune asked Great Place to Work® to survey more than 88,000 Millennials (born 1981 or later), who rated their organizations on 58 workplace quality questions. Employees considered the sincerity of managers' support for people's personal and professional lives, how transparent communication is, people's ability to be themselves at work and to invest in their lives outside work, and the meaning they get from their jobs, among many other factors. Millennials' anonymous responses resulted in a total score for each company, which was compared to the benchmark for organizations of that size. Companies needed to employ at least 50 Millennials and achieve a 95 percent confidence level and margin of error of 5 percent or less in order to be eligible.
