The 100 Best Workplaces for Women list highlights companies with generous benefits, flexible schedules, and an emphasis on balancing work and life. Rankings are determined by employee surveys and the representation of women within the overall workforce and in management and executive positions.
“There is a strong correlation between being able to talk openly with company executives and feeling like a workplace is fair,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Traditionally, communication channels with leaders have been less available to women than to men. The Best Workplaces for Women do well at paving the way for those open dialogs, and as a result, women are more likely to feel they get fair consideration in their jobs and careers. Congratulations to these great companies—they are showing everyone how to create a Great Place to Work For ALL.”
Acuity’s workplace offers unique benefits designed for women, such as a Mothers’ Room, as well as facilities and features enjoyed by all employees, such as an on-site fitness center, bonding events for employees, and numerous programs that recognize, reward, and encourage staff.
“We have worked diligently to create a great workplace for everyone,” said Joan Ravanelli Miller, Acuity’s General Counsel/Vice President - Human Resources. “Creating an environment that supports people in and outside of work isn’t just an issue for women—it’s an issue for all employees, which is why we are honored to be recognized for building a culture based on respect, fairness, and opportunity.”
Acuity is rated as a top employer in other categories as well. The company earned a spot on the Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance, Best Workplaces for Baby Boomers, Best Workplaces for Recent College Graduates, and Best Workplaces for Millennials lists in 2016. Acuity was also ranked #2 in Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For® in 2016.
“Acuity is committed to being a top employer across many industries and for employees of all backgrounds. Our continued recognition as a Best Workplace is something that everyone at Acuity can be proud of,” said Ben Salzmann, Acuity President and CEO.
