Fairfax, VA — Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have honored Highlight as one of the 2022 Best Workplaces for Women. This is Highlight’s first time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at 2nd place in the small and medium category. Earning a spot means that Highlight 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 640,000 women who work for Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies that employ at least 50 women. Companies must also have least 20% of non-executive managers who are women, and at least one executive who’s a woman. In the Great Place to Work survey 97% of Highlight employees said Highlight is a great place to work. This number is 40% higher than the average U.S. company.

“This is wonderful news and reflects Highlight’s emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe that no matter who you are, and how you self-identify, you are valued for your contributions to our company, clients, and work community.” Said Highlight CEO, Rebecca Andino.

The Fortune Best Workplaces for Women list is highly competitive. It’s the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly women say they’re treated at their workplace. Great Place to Work measures the differences in women’s survey responses with those of their peers and assesses the impact of demographics and roles on the quality and consistency of women’s experiences.

“Congratulations to the Best Workplaces for Women and their commitment to ensuring equity for women at every level of the organization,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “These companies showed up for women in new ways to help them cope with challenges they face wherever they are—both inside and outside of work. Women in these companies are seen, heard and valued.”
