These retailers are best workplaces for women
Wegmans, Publix and other food retailers have been named as Best Workplaces for Women by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE.
Wegmans ranked No. 2, while Publix ranked No. 29. The ranking was based on anonymous survey feedback representing more than 4.5 million US employees from Great Place to Work-Certified companies.
"That we are once again on the list of best workplaces for women is something to celebrate," says Colleen Wegman, CEO. "We are so proud and grateful that our employees have created a workplace where everyone feels valued and supported."
Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, analyzed women and men's responses to over 60 different metrics measuring the extent to which their organizations create a Great Place to Work For All. Rankings reward companies in which women have equally great experiences as their colleagues and which have strong representation of women in the workforce and leadership positions.
"This year, we pledged to close the employee experience gender gap by 2020, and these winning organizations are leading the way in achieving this mission, proving that all companies, regardless of their industry, size, or complexity, can be great workplaces for women," said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
The Best Workplaces for Women is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. Great Place to Work is also the organization that conducts research and compiles results for FORTUNE's annual "100 Best Companies to Work For" list, which has included Wegmans for 21 consecutive years.
