Ardor Health Solutions was named as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women in 2015. Ardor Health Solutions ranked 79th in the inaugural list compiled by Great Place to Work and Fortune.com. The survey gathered feedback from female employees who recognize their workplace as a place where women can thrive.
How Are Companies Chosen?
Great Place to Work® surveyed 135,689 women at 637 companies, who answered a detailed questionnaire considering everything from the fairness of their company’s promotions, to who has access to information and leadership, the level of support for employees’ personal lives, and the degree of inclusiveness and connection they feel with colleagues. Women answered 58 questions in total, including an overall assessment of whether the company is a great place to work.
These survey results have a high degree of reliability in accurately reflecting employees’ experiences: In statistical terms, women’s survey results all meet a 95 percent confidence level and a margin of error of 6.5 percent or less.
The survey results are the biggest reason companies appear on this ranking, since two-thirds of each company’s score is based on women’s reports. The remaining third takes into account how well-represented women and minorities are within the workforce overall and in management and executive positions. We also gave higher scores to companies who achieved the highest level of parity between men and women in their organization – meaning, companies where not only the most women reported the company performed well on an index of fairness-related questions, but also those where just as many women had that experience as men.
