We’re proud to announce that FORTUNE and Great Place to Work have named The Container Store one of the country’s 2017 Best Workplaces for Women! The creators of the list considered more than 400,000 employee surveys from hundreds of businesses and took into account women’s assessment of their organization’s culture, leadership, and fairness, among other factors essential for a great workplace.
More specifically, organizations that made the list were evaluated on:
- Key metrics for a great workplace. Great Place to Work analyzed how women rated their organizations in more than 50 areas, including respect, fairness, management and camaraderie.
- Gender comparison. The ranking considered women’s survey results compared to their colleagues' to ensure women had as positive an experience as men. This took into account an index of factors where women often lag their peers, such as access to meaningful work, fair pay and plans for a future with their organizations.
- Consistent experiences in a diverse group. Great Place to Work also analyzed demographic patterns to ensure companies created great workplaces for all women, regardless of who they are or what jobs they do.
At The Container Store, women make up more than 65% of our overall workforce and hold the majority of our leadership positions, including five of our top six Executive Leadership positions. Our CEO, Melissa Reiff said, “We are proud that our company provides an inclusive and supportive environment and structure, where career path opportunities are available for ALL employees. We are committed to our employees’ development and helping them achieve success through training, collaboration and clear, consistent and effective communication.”
