And all our young people that love working there at Texas collegial environment and a wonder how with the break point is in terms of companies that considered. Right absolutely the company had to be bigger than 500 employees to make it into the methodology the methodology is just incredible bill there are 500 million. Members of Utley didn't so what they decide if there were doing was looking get bitterly billions of user action and it looked at thirteen different metric. And done get this last year were able to determine by looking at the thirteenth district metrics across. Billions user action.

They don't show up on the on the top fifty that the United States but they do shop at the bit of warrantless but that blue chip company. That you know what I graduate from college also you know what people would who would not mean you like somebody you know Procter gamble. On kind of companies they're not they they're not. There come leader incredibly great company but they're not exciting enough to see. The company that people really want to look at that though in the fight for talent.

Doing incredibly innovative exciting thing and it GE's on the within it foreign country not United States that would about. Scandal you know you wait we've covered. Ad nauseam.

And and be comically here. What do when it. What did you learn and what can a corporate leader learned from that linked in study an hour or is there a lesson there at all because it sounds like it's it's it's a narrow band. Anything less and the companies because you know you. You you at beef based but he can't be Amazon but what top secret especially the really great talent what they're looking for that the excitement and relative. The article even at the company with. Six people. They wanna be doing something that is exciting it is. But with you and it is why there's no more job security people are joining companies for twenty years they're not the it will for the first years all. I'll go to the vocation dollar.
