TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, today announced it was named one of the 2016 Best Workplaces for Women, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune.
TEKsystems ranked No. 80 on the list, which is based on employees’ assessments of communications with management, options for development and training, and support for work-life balance, among other factors. The ranking also takes into account how well represented women are within the workforce overall, in management and other executive positions.
“There’s a strong correlation between being able to talk openly with company executives and feeling like a workplace is fair,” said Michael C. Bush, Chief Executive Officer of Great Place to Work®. “Traditionally, communication channels with leaders have been less available to women than to men. The Best Workplaces for Women do well at paving the way for those open dialogs, and as a result, women are more likely to feel they get fair consideration in their jobs and careers. Congratulations to these great companies—they are showing everyone how to create a great place to work for all.”
Both women and men at employers recognized as Best Workplaces for Women feel they are given ample opportunities to grow and advance their careers and the flexibility they want to balance their work and personal lives.
“TEKsystems has enabled me not only to accomplish my professional goals, but also—and more importantly—to feel I am able to live out my purpose. I have the opportunity each day to help my partners be the best possible version of themselves, and through that connection, I also grow and learn to be the best possible version of myself. For me that’s what it’s all about—a team working together, striving to be our best and in the process delivering an exceptional outcome for our customers and consultants. I love working for TEKsystems because I believe my work has meaning in the lives of those around me!”
Regional Vice President, TEKsystems

Published together with our partner Fortune, the 100 Best Workplaces for Women rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 137,762 women at Great Place to Work–Certified companies. Women completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, 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. 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.
Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 6% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by being a great place to work for women, and has a workplace where women have high representation in the total employee population and in management positions. The 100 companies with the highest employee ratings and female representation were selected for the list.
