Brill Street Ranks Joel Warady Group the 15th Top Gen Y Employer

Share Article

In its first ever study, Brill Street ranks Joel Warady Group 15th among 50 other employers in the Chicagoland area in the Top 50 Gen Y Employers. Brill Street members visited companies and performed audits to determine the ranking system.

The Joel Warady Group, a boutique marketing consulting group, placed 15th on Brill Street's Top 50 Generation Y Employer Program Chicago. Joining the company in the top 20 are elite organizations such as Google, Euro RSCG Chicago, The Field Museum and Threadless.

The Joel Warady Group is an office comprised of all Gen Yers, sans the president of the company, Joel Warady, who is the resident "old guy." Warady relies on his Generation Y employees to bring fresh ideas to the table in order to keep the company ahead on current trends, technology and pop culture.

"We let Gen Y contribute heavily on the development of our programs. I will offer guidance, but our Gen Yers can take command and manage the projects on a daily basis. The Gen Y employees are the ones interfacing with the clients regularly--it's their execution and their projects," Warady said.

This is the first year Brill Street has conducted this quantitative and qualitative study. Chicago employers who qualified for the study needed at least 10 percent of their workforce comprised of Generation Y. Finalists then held on-sight interviews with Brill Street team members who then determined the ranking order of companies. Chicago companies were graded upon many factors including advancement potential, training opportunities and compensation and benefits available to Generation Yers.

Brill Street used a point-based model developed by GfK Custom North America, a leading global marketing research agency, in determining a company's rank. Generation Y included employees who were 28 years or younger. The complete list of Brill Street's study can be found on
