100 Best Workplaces for Women

See our methodology and credits



Published together with our partner Great Place to Work, the 100 Best Workplaces for Women rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 137,762 women at Great Place to Work–Certified companies.

Women completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of how fairly they're treated regardless of gender, the quality and authenticity of communications with managers, and equitable pay and promotion practices.

Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 6% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by being a great place to work for women, and has a workplace where women have high representation in the total employee population and in management positions. The 100 companies with the highest employee ratings and female representation were selected for the list.

Employees say:


“Aflac actually makes exceptions to our processes based on specific situations. The work environment is friendly and flexible. There is always something to do. I can go to management if my situation is not being addressed as I feel it should. I am treated as an individual when needed. The teams function as a family. We all work together to support the Aflac brand!! We are family!”


“[I appreciate] the encouragement of work/life balance,and that family and personal health is allowed to come first. Also, the ability of management to see their employees’ skill sets and to develop them in the professional direction they would fit best, even if it means going outside their current department.”
