Acuity Insurance is named to the Forbes list of The Best Employers for Women 2018, identified from an independent survey of more than 40,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people.
In collaboration with analytics firm Statista, Forbes asked employees in companies across all industry sectors to rate their employer on atmosphere and development, image, working conditions, salary and wages, workplace, and diversity. The survey also considered topics relevant to women, including parental leave, family support, flexibility, representation and career, and pay equity. The 300 highest-ranking companies were named to The Best Employers for Women 2018.
Employees who took part in the survey were not contacted through their employers but, rather, did so on their own through several online access channels.
“Earlier this year, we were pleased to be named to the Forbes list of America’s Best Midsize Employers, and we are now honored to be named to The Best Employers for Women,” said Ben Salzmann, Acuity President and CEO. “In both cases, the recognition is particularly rewarding because these are not awards Acuity could decide to apply for. These awards come from people feeling so strongly about Acuity that they took the time to share their feelings on their own.”
“We strive to create a great workplace for everyone,” said Joan Ravanelli Miller, Acuity’s General Counsel/Vice President - Human Resources. “Creating a positive work environment isn’t just an issue that impacts women; it’s something that is important to all employees.”
Acuity’s workplace offers unique benefits designed for women, such as mothers’ rooms, as well as facilities and features enjoyed by all employees, such as an on-site fitness center, family nights and other bonding events for employees, and numerous programs that recognize, reward, and encourage staff.
