Bellevue, Wash, Sept. 30, 2015 – Limeade is thrilled to announce that Great Place to Work® and Fortune included Limeade as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women. Limeade ranked #22 on the list and was recognized for encouraging employees to enjoy their time at work. The winning companies were selected based on evaluations from over 135,600 female employees on the Great Place to Work’s Trust Index© employee survey that explores the workplace.
“According to our study, 100 percent of Limeade employees say it is a great workplace,” says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Great Place to Work’s Senior Editor.
“We are thrilled with this honor because we strive to create an intentional culture that supports everyone’s well-being,” said Dr. Laura Hamill, Chief People Officer at Limeade. “Well-being is not only the core of our people strategy, it’s directly tied to our business strategy. This recognition is evidence that we are making progress on our mission of measurably improving well-being in the world through happy, healthy, high-performing workforces.”
Women were surveyed on workplace topics including the fairness of promotions, access to information and leadership, the level of support for employees’ personal lives, and the degree of inclusiveness and connection with colleagues. Scores also considered 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 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 measures rating 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 is 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.
