methodology

Once upon a time, it was common practice for somebody to dedicate most of their career to one company in exchange for a gold watch and a swanky retirement party. Nowadays, the typical worker stays at a company for just 3.68 years overall. Which companies maintain long-term relationships with their employees, and which ones have to update their company directory daily? PayScale scoured the Fortune 500 list to see which companies have the most (and least) loyal employees.

Companies with the Most Loyal Employees
In spite of the trend toward career ADHD, these companies manage to hang onto their employees the longest. What’s their secret? Some companies incentivize workers with generous pay and benefits, but other factors, including job type, the age of the workforce and the company’s financial performance and history of layoffs affect typical tenure as well.

Many factors can influence an employee's tenure with a company (e.g. age, contract/temporary status, etc.), making it difficult to quantify "employee loyalty." For this report, we do our best to account for as many of those factors as possible, based on the data and sample size available via the PayScale employee survey.
