When it comes to workplace issues, some companies are putting gender equality at the top of their priority lists.
Facebook, Chick-fil-A and Salesforce are among the best large companies for women, according to compensation, culture and career monitoring website Comparably.
Women's roles in companies have helped them rank highly on Comparably's list, Comparably CEO Jason Nazar said. For example, insurance agency technology firm Vertaforce and social and dating app Bumble both have female chief executive officers in Amy Zupon and Whitney Wolfe Herd, respectively.
“The single biggest thing that’s driving inclusiveness for women is having more women in positions of management and leadership," Nazar said.
Another main focus of companies on the list is compensation for women, as "they spend the time and effort to make sure they are closing the gender pay gap," according to Nazar. Women earned 82 percent of what men earned in 2017, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of median hourly earnings of both full- and part-time workers in the United States.
The lists represent the best companies for women, as rated by their employees on Comparably.com and listed in alphabetical order. Large companies are organizations with more than 500 employees. Small-to-medium companies are organizations with fewer than 500 employees.
