Abstract

Closer examination of data derived from the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2005 (100 top large companies) reveals that the workforce of the 'best' companies are predominantly made up of young people under 35. On average 56% of employees working for 'best companies' are under 35 years old, and only 6% over 55 years old compared to only 36% of the general working population being under 35 and 15% over 55. Age diversity is certainly not a feature of the top 100.
