Funeral Directors Life Named One of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Millennials by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE

ABILENE, TX – Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have honored Funeral Directors Life as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials for 2018 for the second consecutive year. Great Place to Work, a research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 434,000 employee surveys across 50 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning.

“We are honored to be named to FORTUNE’s 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials list,” said Kris Seale, President and CEO of Funeral Directors Life. “Several years ago, we began to intentionally grow and develop the young people within our organization through leadership training programs, apprenticeships, internships, and mentorship programs. As we support their growth in areas that cannot be learned in a classroom, they also are bringing new ideas, insights, and a fresh perspective to our company. Many of our apprentices and interns go on to become vital, full-time members of our team. We feel that providing these types of programs to attract Millennials is a win-win both for them and for our organization as a whole.”

The Best Workplaces for Millennials stand out for their unique, innovative cultures, which helps them attract and retain Millennial employees. In the last year, Funeral Directors Life continued to implement unique workplace benefits such as fitness classes, book studies, monthly employee luncheons, and mentored apprenticeship programs.

“Great Place to Work is proud of these Best Workplaces that give their Millennial employees the tools they need to succeed,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like Funeral Directors Life set the bar for other workplaces seeking to retain and develop the next generation of leaders, and prove that giving Millennials jobs with purpose and meaning drives them to give their best at work, benefitting the company as a whole.”

The Best Workplaces for Millennials is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. Funeral Directors Life also was named to the 2018 Best Workplace for Financial Services & Insurance list as well as the 2018 Best Workplaces in Texas list by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE.
