WEST JORDAN, Utah, Sept. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have named Mountain America Credit Union one of the country’s Best Workplaces for Women. The list considered more than 400,000 employee surveys from hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. The ranking gauged women’s assessment of their organizations’ culture, leadership, fairness and other elements essential for a great workplace.
“We are proud our employees named us among the best workplaces for women,” says Pam Lewis, senior vice president of human resources for Mountain America. “We strive to provide a great workplace and exceptional culture for all employees, and to be recognized by the women in our company is a special honor.”
Research from Great Place to Work has shown that women are five times more likely to plan a long-term future with their employer when they say they’re treated as full members of the team, regardless of position. The Best Workplaces for Women also set themselves apart from competitors in other important ways: 95 percent of women at these organizations describe them as friendly, and the same share say they are proud to tell others where they work.
“The Best Workplaces for Women deserve recognition for crafting environments where men and women alike can bring their best selves to work each day,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
The Best Workplaces for Women is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.
