The end of the year always marks a time of reflection, and here at Fairygodboss we’ve been thinking about what companies have done this past year to make their workplaces welcoming for women. If you’re wondering which companies have been ranked highest by their female employees, check out our recently published list of Top 25 Companies for Women in 2016. It highlights some of the best and fairest places to work based solely on female employees’ reviews and scores. Earning top spots on the list are Apple, Deloitte, Accenture, Vanguard Group and General Electric, with others trailing close behind.
You might be wondering how exactly these companies distinguish themselves in terms of appealing to women, and while there’s not one simple answer, we can tell you why our users have been happy at their workplaces.
Upon joining Fairygodboss, women are invited to review where they work based on their experiences regarding pay, maternity leave policy, female- and family-friendliness, whether men and women are treated equally, and whether they would recommend their employer to other women. In addition, users can write in their own comments and rate their overall job satisfaction level (on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest level of satisfaction).
The companies that made our top 25 list are paying close attention to these issues and implementing practices and policies designed to recruit and retain female talent.
What, specifically, are they doing? Here’s what their female employees have said on Fairygodboss:
As women still face an uphill battle in achieving gender equality in the workplace, we applaud these companies whose visions and policies are in line with that goal – and we hope that more will join in this effort in 2017.
Fairygodboss is committed to improving the workplace and lives of women.
