Women in the Workplace
North Texas is a great place to work if you’re a woman, according to a new survey by Fortune.com. Out of the 100 best workplaces for women, Dallas-Fort Worth claims five in the top 20, including No. 1 Texas Health Resources in Arlington.
The other four DFW companies in the top 20 include Prime Lending in Dallas (5), Texas Rehabilitation Hospital in Fort Worth (8), Granite Properties in Plano (14), and Container Store in Coppell (19).
The survey, conducted in partnership with Great Place to Work, was based on feedback from more than 137,762 women at Great Place to Work-certified companies. The women were asked to answer an anonymous trust index survey that included questions about what constitutes a great workplace — i.e., how fairly they're treated, the quality and authenticity of communications with managers, and equitable pay and promotion practices.
Companies landing a spot on the list stood out as being great places for women to work and had a high representation of women in the total employee population and in management positions.
Rounding out the top five are Child Trends in Bethesda, Maryland (No. 2), and Ultimate Software in Weston, Florida (No. 4).
In all, 11 Texas companies make the list, including two other Dallas-area companies — Ryan (No. 76), a professional tax services company, and the nonprofit Momentous Institute (No. 89).
Houston’s Camden Property Trust ranks No. 13, while Transwestern and Houston Methodist are Nos. 60 and 71, respectively. San Antonio’s USAA lands at No. 73.
