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.

Bright Horizons Family Solutions

Employees say:


“I feel thankful every day to work for Bright Horizons. I started in a different role and my manager recognized an interest and talent in another area, and worked with me to transition into a new role. As a result, I’ve grown professionally and love what I do. I’ve also recently had significant health challenges and can’t adequately express my gratitude for the support I felt through that time. We talk about the ‘Bright Horizons family’ a lot, but they aren’t just words—this company and the people who work here really do act like a family and go above and beyond to support each other.”


“I like the fact that the company encourages the staff to continue their education and better themselves. The training provided by the company keeps the teachers up on their teaching skills and helps them learn about new things to take back to the classrooms. I am also happy that the company is big on diversity and ensures that all parents, staff and children are treated with respect no matter their color, age, sex etc.”
