Jackson Healthcare, an Alpharetta-based provider of healthcare staffing services, debuted at number 64 on Fortune's 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials list. 

Great Place to Work evaluated more than 50 elements of employees' experiences on the job. These included managers' competence, respect and fairness in the workplace, opportunities for meaningful work, how effectively executives lead the organization, and whether the company gives everyone an opportunity to innovate and contribute to the organization's success.

"I'm always surprised when people talk about how different -- or even difficult -- it is to work with millennials," points out Shane Jackson, president of Jackson Healthcare. "If you truly value people as individuals -- which we work hard to do at Jackson Healthcare -- you end up with a great workplace for everyone. Our inclusion on this Fortune list is special to me because it validates the strong culture we work hard to cultivate."

In addition to offering associates an on-site medical clinic and pharmacy, fitness facility, health services and healthy, company-subsidized restaurants, Jackson Healthcare fosters a culture of giving, called LoveLifts. The company's LoveLifts program provides access to healthcare and fosters well-being for disadvantaged children through associate volunteerism, business mobilization, purpose partnerships and corporate giving that includes matching funds for associates who donate time and/or money to their favorite causes. Jackson Healthcare's double-digit growth, which is twice its industry average, provides growth opportunities for current associates and new opportunities for future associates.

"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 Jackson Healthcare 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, benefiting the company as a whole."
