Companies are increasingly mindful of the benefits of workplace diversity—generally focusing on the key issues of race, gender and sexual orientation. But a variety of work experience is another factor that can strengthen a company's culture. While the advantages of hiring seasoned professionals are obvious, employees who are just starting out bring value, too. Job starters often provide fresh perspectives and new ideas. A company that invests in training and mentorship can see rewards in increased enthusiasm and loyalty. And job starters themselves, meanwhile, are eager to know which companies will truly welcome and support them.
It's important to remember that "job starters" aren't necessarily the youngest workers. It's been reported that 53 percent of people who quit their jobs in 2021 during the "Great Resignation" chose another field or industry, and 45 percent of those people were 30 and older, according to Pew Research.
For those reasons, Newsweek and data firm Plant-A Insights Group are proud to introduce our ranking of "America's Greatest Workplaces for Job Starters 2023." Our research revealed that these 450 companies are leading the way. The ranking is based on the responses of employees with a working experience of five years or less, currently employed at companies with at least 1,000 employees.
We hope this ranking provides jobseekers with important insights about where they might want to work, while spotlighting companies who understand the value that new team members can offer.

'America’s Greatest Workplaces 2023' recognizes the best workplaces in the United States, by state and by their performance in the following categories: diversity, empowerment of women, veterans and job starters, LGBTQ+ , remote work, and more.
