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:


“This is THE best company I have ever worked for. They are always thinking of employees and what is right. They really try to make a day at Workday not your ordinary workday. From bringing your dogs to summertime Monday Fundays with a variety of outdoor activities, to all of the events for employees and their families like Bring Your Kids, Bring Your Parents, Bring Your Teens and our company picnic. This year it was a carnival, and I have never seen so many smiling happy faces. I have never worked for a company that is so generous.”


“Workday is fun, energetic company to work for—very dynamic in a constant state of positive change to create improvements. The company supports autonomy and empowers you to lead, make, and own your decisions.”
