Hanover, Md. – September 30, 2015 – TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, today announced it has earned recognition as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women in the U.S. TEKsystems earned the distinction as a result of anonymous surveys of the company’s female employees administered by the workplace culture experts at Great Place to Work®.
TEKsystems’ female employees, who make up half of all new hires, identified the company’s relationship-based culture as one of the reasons they believe TEKsystems is a great place to work. TEKsystems and the 99 other winning companies were selected based on evaluations by over 135,600 female employees on Great Place to Work’s Trust Index© employee survey. Women considered everything from the fairness of their company’s promotions, to who has access to information and leadership, the level of support for employees’ personal lives, and the degree of inclusiveness and connection they feel with colleagues. Scores also take into account how well-represented women are within the workforce, management and executive positions; how positively women experience their workplace’s fairness and how favorable women’s experiences are compared to the 138,000 men also surveyed.
“We believe that our workforce is in a better position to satisfy our customers and succeed in their roles when they are motivated, inspired and included,” says TEKsystems Director of Diversity and Inclusion Michelle Webb. “Through our employee resource groups, councils and leadership development programs, we’re committed to providing women support that empowers them in the workplace. As a woman who has been with TEKsystems for almost 20 years, I can say that I was given the guidance, skills and push needed to fuel a lasting and fulfilling career. It is truly is a great place to work.”
“TEKsystems has always been a place where we invest in both the professional and personal growth of every employee,” says TEKsystems Vice President of Human Resources Faith Johnson. “As a company, we are honored to be on Fortune and Great Place to Work 100 Best Workplaces for Women list. This recognition is a result of women at our company expressing that they feel valued and included, which is something we strive for amongst all our employees.”
Earlier this year, TEKsystems garnered recognition as one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For® 2015 (ranked 43), one of Fortune’s 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials (ranked 42) and as one of the Great Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services (ranked 6).
The 100 Best Workplaces for Women is part of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based entirely on employee surveys from published Great Place to Work reviews.
