This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on July 26th, 2022 and can currently be viewed on the Forbes website.

The Forbes list of The Best Employers for Women was conducted through an independent survey by Statista that included around 50,000 in the U.S. employed at companies with a minimum of 1,000 employees. The sample includes more than 30,000 women.

The evaluation was based on four different criteria:

1.      Direct recommendations – General work topics: The employees were asked to give their opinion on a series of statements surrounding Likelihood of recommendation, atmosphere & development, image, working conditions, salary & wage, workplace, and diversity regarding their own employer.

2.      Direct recommendations – topics relevant to women: To focus on topics which are in general more relevant for women, women were asked to rate their own employers regarding parental leave, family support, flexibility, discrimination, representation & career, and pay equity.

3.      Indirect recommendations: Additionally, participants were given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively regarding diversity. Only the recommendations of women were considered.

4.      Diversity among top executives / board: Based on extensive research, an index was built based on the share of women in executive management or board positions. Statista researched this data for each company using publicly available company information.
