IRVING, Texas, October 24, 2023 — Great Place To Work® and Fortune magazine have selected Vizient as one of the 2023 Fortune Best Workplaces for Women™ List. This is Vizient’s second time being named to this prestigious list. Earning a spot means that Vizient is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place To Work analyzed the survey responses of over 600,000 women who work for Great Place To Work Certified™ companies that were eligible for the list. To be considered, a company must employ at least 50 women, and have at least 20% of non-executive managers who are women and at least one executive who’s a woman.
"We are grateful for our dedicated employees who have again made us part of this list, affirming our dedication to gender equality and inclusion," said Patty Olsen, Vizient chief people officer. "Vizient recognizes that when women succeed, companies succeed. We thank our employees for all they have done and continue to do to earn this honor."
The Best Workplaces for Women list is highly competitive. Great Place To Work, the global authority on workplace culture, determines its lists using its proprietary For All™ Methodology to evaluate and certify thousands of organizations in America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study, with over 1.3 million survey responses received this year, representing the experiences of more than 7.5 million employees.
Survey responses reflect a comprehensive picture of the workplace experience. Honorees were selected based on their ability to offer positive outcomes for women regardless of job role, race, sexual orientation, work status, or other demographic identifier. Great Place To Work analyzed the gender balance of each workplace compared with Bureau of Labor Statistics industry data. Companies are also assessed on how representation changes as women rise from front-line positions to the board of directors.
"In a challenging market, companies can’t afford to leave workers on the sidelines," says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work. "When women feel empowered to be full participants in the workplace, productivity and profit grows, insulating the organization from external pressure. We celebrate these companies who are committed to closing the gender gap, developing the next generation of women leaders to solve the complex problems we all face."
"Fortune congratulates the companies that made the cut for the Best Workplaces for Women," says Fortune Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell. "Based on survey responses of so many women nationwide, these companies clearly demonstrate they have created workplaces where women are consistently valued, supported, and encouraged to do their best work."
In 2023, Vizient also ranked as a Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®, Best Workplaces for Consulting & Professional Services™, Millenials™, Workplaces in Texas™ and a PEOPLE® Companies that Care®.
