To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Fortune research partner Great Place to Workasked women about experiences in their workplace based on their ability to reach their full potential and how their gender shapes those experiences. Great Place to Work then analyzed trends based on an organization’s size, industry and region. It also analyzes the gender balance of each workplace and how it compares with Bureau of Labor Statistics industry data.
Led by CEO Colleen Wegman, Wegmans ranked No. 22 on Fortune’s Best Workplaces for Women. Ninety percent of associates say that it’s a great place to work, compared with 57% of workers at a typical U.S.-based company. Approximately 53% of the company’s workforce is female, and almost 32% of executive/manager positions are held by women.
An employee said: “Wegmans has been welcoming from the moment I interviewed and participated in orientation. All managers and employees that I’ve interacted with, my department managers included, have strived to get to know me individually as an employee. They make sure that I have time to balance both work and my personal life, and make sure that I am given new opportunities to grow in my department.”
Publix was No. 69 on the list.
“We’re honored to be recognized as a best workplace for women by Fortune,” said Publix VP of Human Resources Marcy Benton. “Being named on the 2023 list reflects Publix’s commitment to creating a culture of inclusion and advancement for all associates, which includes many incredibly talented women.”
