MayflowerGroup is a volunteer-run consortium of 40+ private sector member companies dedicated to sharing employee survey data and best practices to drive key business decisions. Our member companies represent the top organizations from a variety of industries including aerospace, finance, technology, manufacturing, insurance, pharmaceuticals, retail, and more.
MayflowerGroup dates back to 1971, when the founding members first met at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington D.C., launching an organization dedicated to the sharing of benchmarks and best practices from some of the world’s most successful companies. As MayflowerGroup has grown from the initial 18-member organization, it has carefully balanced the desire to include quality data from a variety of companies with the need to maintain a manageable size that promotes the easy exchange of ideas and information.
Membership grants you access to our normative employee survey data, which is available for over 3 million employees in over 130 countries and regularly updated. All data comes straight from member companies, so you can be confident that the data is fresh and relevant to your organization. Additionally, you can launch on-demand surveys of fellow members to assess benchmarks or best practices on specific topics.
Mayflower members also benefit from invaluable networking opportunities with all of our member companies. Our annual Mayflower conferences, for example, provide members with the opportunity to meet other world-class leaders to exchange business strategies and insights, share relevant research and best practices, as well as participate in unique cross-functional professional development experiences. Our exclusive networking opportunities allow our members to build new, lasting relationships with senior leaders, subject matter experts, and key business stakeholders from across our member companies.
To join Mayflower, your organization must have over 7,500 employees and conduct an active, high-quality employee survey program. Member companies must submit survey data at least every other year, which includes our core items.
