The National Society of High School Scholars Millennial Career Survey has identified 3M as the most preferred company to work for, among respondents in 2016. The survey included 13,000 high school and college students and young professionals.
Survey participants demonstrated a keen interest for careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and to use their skills to improve the world.
“People want to be part of a company where they have room to grow, take on new challenges and help others by giving back,” said Marlene McGrath, senior vice president, 3M Human Resources. “One of the great aspects of 3M is that we offer people the opportunity to develop work experiences in multiple businesses and geographies around the world and improve lives through science.”
3M is well-known as a science-based company that helps customers all over the world solve some of their biggest challenges. The company is committed to creating a sustainable future and driving societal progress. The “3M Science. Applied to Life.” brand platform reflects and supports 3M’s vision:
Among the respondents who selected 3M as their company of choice, 74 percent are currently in high school and 21 percent are in college. “Medicine/Health” was the top field choice among 41 percent of survey respondents, while 30 percent selected “Sciences,” 21 percent picked “Technology/Engineering,” and 20 percent indicated “Business/Corporate” – all career choices offered by 3M’s diversified portfolio of businesses.
3M offers the opportunity to take on new challenges and explore different roles and career paths without having to leave the company.
Staff can take advantage of the 3M FlexAbility program to manage their work/life balance, and can count on development opportunities at every stage of your career. These are just a few of the reasons we were voted into the top spot.
“If you look at our members, in terms of their interest in the STEM fields, it’s a really strong fit with 3M and the innovative ideas and solutions that the company is developing,” said Beth Pann, vice president, National Society of High School Scholars.
The National Society of High School Scholars conducted the survey in partnership with Hanover Research. This survey represents an important segment of the millennial and the generation next who are focused on college and career success.
