Blind, an anonymous community app, surveyed tech employees to see how many would identify themselves as depressed.
- 38.78% answered with ‘True’ to a question asking if they were depressed.
- Amazon led the way with 43.4% of employees answering with ‘True,” Microsoft (with 41.58%) and Intel (with 38.86%).
- Apple had the lowest percentage of employees answering with 30.61%.
- The two other companies with the lowest percentage of employees answering with ‘False’ are Google (with 33.11%) and Cisco (with 34.69%).
The survey ran from Nov 20 through Nov 28, 2018, and was answered by 10,081 users of the Blind app. Users could only answer once.
Almost two-thirds (62 percent) of U.S. millennials (ages 18-34) would likely recommend a brand that has an exceptional social media presence — quick response times, informative, across multiple sites — even if they weren’t initially happy with their product or service, according to a survey by the Harris Poll on behalf of Telus International.
Other key findings:
43 percent of millennials said if a brand they purchase from does not have a social media page to provide feedback on, they would consider purchasing from a different brand that does.
72 percent of millennials said they would be more likely to be loyal to a brand that responds to feedback through social media over a brand that does not (compared with 47 percent of Americans ages 45 and older)
66 percent of millennials said their loyalty towards a brand would be impacted by how quickly they address their feedback through social media.
