Standing Out with Diversity

The ranking considered more than 440,000 employee surveys from organizations in a wide range of industries across the U.S. Great Place to Work evaluated more than 50 elements of team members’ experience on the job, including: professional development, behaviors linked to innovation, leadership confidence, and consistent treatment among employees of different backgrounds. The ranking also accounted for the share of women, people of color, Baby Boomers and LGBT individuals in the workplace.

The Best Workplaces for Diversity stand out for their consistent leadership and the meaningful ways that all employees contribute to their organizations. Tenure for women and people of color was higher at the leading employers than at their peers. In several business sectors, the winning organizations also reported turnover two to three times lower than industry averages.

“The Best Workplaces for Diversity have achieved something beyond basic fairness. They find ways to connect with each and every employee, listening to their challenges and building on their talents,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
