Best Women’s Retail Workplaces
In brief, Great Place to Work used this process for its 2017 rankings.
“[Above all, we] surveyed 400,000+ U.S. employees. And we ranked firms based on four factors. First, Key Work Metrics. We analyzed how women rated their firms. We examined 50 metrics. They included ethics, respect, benefits, and support. Second, Comparison to Colleagues. We compared women and male colleagues. In addition, we looked at data which show women lag their peers. These include access to leaders and recognition. Third, Consistent Experience in a Diverse Group. we checked whether firms were great for all women. This was regardless of who they are or what they do. Fourth, Balance. we considered how many women were in each firm. We looked at the workforce. And we reviewed executive positions.”
