HANOVER, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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
“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

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

About the Best Workplaces for Women
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.
