For the second year in a row, Fortune and Great Place to Work have recognized The Container Store as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women – and this year we’re proud to be ranked #19!!!
Our ranking is based entirely upon feedback from our female employees who completed Great Place to Work’s anonymous Trust Index survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace – including 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.
Fortune created the full list of 100 Best Workplaces for Women by surveying more than 137,700 women from hundreds of companies. The women’s anonymous responses resulted in a total score for each company, which was compared to the benchmark for organizations of that size, and ranked accordingly. The 100 companies with the highest employee ratings and female representation made the list! We’re proud that at The Container Store, our employee base is 65% female and 13 of our top 17 leadership positions are also held by women.
When it comes to hiring, our ultimate goal is to find GREAT people. The first place we look is among our own customers – the majority of whom are women. If we have someone who’s coming into our stores so often that all the employees know her, and love working with her, and who loves and uses a multitude of our products, then she’s often the perfect hire!
Huge thanks to ALL of our employees for creating an inclusive and supportive work environment in order to ensure everyone connected to our business can thrive!
