100 Best Workplaces for Women 2017

See our methodology and credits



To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work surveyed over 400,000 U.S. employees from Great Place to Work-Certified companies and ranked companies based on four factors:

Key Great Place to Work Metrics. We analyzed how positively women rated their organizations on over 50 different metrics defining great workplaces, including ethical leadership, respectful and fair workplace interactions, great benefits and development, and strong caring and personal support.

Comparison to Colleagues. We compared women's results on all survey questions to that of their male colleagues. Specifically, we looked at an index of factors where the data showed women often lag their peers, such access to leaders and information, and recognition for their work.

A Consistent Experience Within a Diverse Group. We analyzed demographic patterns to ensure that companies were creating great workplaces for all women, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization.

Representation. We took into account how well women were represented in each organization—in the workforce as a whole, as well as in management and executive positions.

Surveys were conducted anonymously and women's results achieved at least a 95% confidence level, 7% margin of error for each organization. Companies needed to employ at least 50 women to be considered.

In recent years, U.S. companies have made big strides in creating office cultures that cater to the female half of their workforce. Flexibility, paid leave, and no harassment are just the beginning, though. For our annual list of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women, Fortune partner Great Place to Work surveyed thousands of women at companies across the country and crunched the numbers to create this list of workplaces that go above and beyond for their female employees.

Delta Air Lines

Employees say: “My company takes the time to listen to my suggestions. We work in a team environment and my opinion as well as the person next to me has equal weight in a discussion. When we had our power outage that caused disruptions to thousands of travelers, they took ownership and did right by our customers and their employees. When doing damage control, everyone gave it their all because we wanted to not because we were told to do it. That speaks volumes!”


“Delta takes very good care of their employees, and the employees love and respect the company. Because of this, the employees are willing to go above and beyond what is expected by leaders in order to ensure that the last customer is taken care of as needed.” Read the Great Place to Work review.
