Forbes has named Republic Services (NYSE: RSG) to its list of America’s Best Employers for Women.
Forbes worked with market research firm Statista to survey 75,000 Americans (including 45,000 women) working for businesses with more than 1,000 workers. The respondents were asked to share opinions on criteria such as working conditions, salary, diversity, and how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others. Female respondents were also asked to rate their employers on factors such as parental leave and discrimination. Additionally, gender diversity on boards and in executive positions was factored into the rankings.
The final list, Forbes’ third such annual ranking, includes 300 employers.
