Fortune Names Quest CE One of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women
MILWAUKEE, WI – September 30, 2015 – Quest CE, premier provider of compliance training and tracking technology solutions, is honored to announce that after surveying more than 135,600 female employees, Great Place to Work® and Fortune have recognized Quest CE as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women in 2015, ranking #20 overall. We consider this honor exceptionally notable because the recognition is based on women’s own assessments of the quality and fairness of our workplace.
“At Quest CE, we’re committed to fostering a corporate culture where talent and ability defines success,” said Quest CE president and CEO Linda Mieth Krenke. “Our goal is to identify and remove workplace barriers so that talented employees can rise to the top, no matter their gender. It’s an honor to be among so many great companies who all recognize the significance of having women in leadership roles, not because they have a quota to fill, but because their organization as a whole is enhanced by diversity – and gender – and equality.”
Quest CE and the 99 other winning companies were selected based on evaluations by over 135,600 female employees on Great Place to Work’s Trust Index© employee survey. Women considered everything from the fairness of their company’s promotions, to who has access to information and leadership, the level of support for employees’ personal lives, and the degree of inclusiveness and connection they feel with colleagues Scores also take into account how well-represented women are within the workforce, management and executive positions; how positively women experience their workplace’s fairness; and how favorable women’s experiences are compared to the 138,000 men also surveyed.
Across the 637 companies studied, Great Place to Work found that men’s and women’s experiences were most likely to differ on measures assessing the fairness of their workplaces – as well as several measures rating their access to communication and involvement in workplace decision-making. By contrast, researchers’ analysis of women and men’s results show that the 100 winning workplaces create a more consistent and inclusive environment for both genders across a range of day-to-day trust-building behaviors, including employees’ access to special recognition, fair treatment regardless of role, and management’s approachability.
“The companies on this list are leaders who recognize the strategic importance of creating workplaces that attract and support the best talent in their industries,” says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work® United States. “While specialized programs to support women’s equal access to opportunity are often strategic, in many ways it is just as important – and challenging for leaders — to establish a pattern of inclusiveness throughout everyday workplace interactions since these rely on everyone to overcome their blind spots. Ranking on this list a great indicator that these companies’ efforts to create great workplaces are resonating throughout their teams.”
The 100 Best Workplaces for Women ranking is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from published Great Place to Work® Reviews.
