AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- It takes the hard work of the company's 850 team members to deliver outstanding service to our residents. CWS Apartment Homes was recently ranked 88th on the list of 100 Best Workplaces for Women to Work in the United States. Vice-President of Human Resources, Linda Liles said, "A respect for people is one of our company values and I think it speaks to why CWS is a best workplace for women. We have a large percentage of women represented in our workforce. Everyone has equal opportunity and it shows. I believe women are also drawn to CWS because of our emphasis on life-work prioritization [in that order], wellness, and philanthropic programs."
The list considered more than 400,000 employee surveys from hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. The ranking gauged women's assessment of their organizations' culture, leadership, fairness and other elements essential for a great workplace.
"Strong female leaders are cultivated at CWS Apartment Homes by how we strategically position women in leadership roles that embody our core values and culture. We have a mentorship mentality that is centered on one to one engagement and targeted training. These critical paths foster a level playing field for women to be promoted within our organization. This is an aspect of our culture I am very proud of," said Gina Roberts, Regional Vice President of Operations.
Research from Great Place to Work has shown that women are five times more likely to plan a long-term future with their employers when they say they're treated as full members of the team, regardless of position. The Best Workplaces for Women also set themselves apart from competitors in other important ways: 95-percent of women at these organizations describe them as friendly, and the same share say they're proud to tell others where they work.
"The Best Workplaces for Women deserve recognition for crafting environments where men and women alike can bring their best selves to work each day," said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
