Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), has been named by Forbes as one of the 2023 America’s Best Employers for Women. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The recipients were announced on July 25, 2023, and the complete list can be viewed on the Forbes website.
The Best Employers for Women have been identified in an independent survey from a sample of more than 60,000 U.S. employees that primarily work for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the United States. The sample included more than 40,000 women. The recognition is based on 2022 information and no fee was paid for consideration.
The evaluation was based on four criteria:
Direct recommendations (General work topics): The employees were asked to give their opinion on a series of statements surrounding atmosphere and development, image, working conditions, salary and wage, workplace, and diversity regarding their employer.
Direct recommendations (Topics relevant to women): To focus on topics that are, in general, more relevant to them, women were asked to rate their employers regarding parental leave, family support, flexibility, discrimination, representation and career, and pay equity.
Indirect recommendations: Participants were given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively concerning diversity. Only the recommendations of women were considered.
- Diversity among top executives/boards: Based on extensive research, an index was built based on the share of women in executive management or board positions. Statista researched this data for each company using publicly available company information.
“Voya is honored to be recognized by Forbes as one of the 2023 America’s Best Employers for Women,” said Nicole Starks, vice president, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). “Our consistent efforts to advance gender equity by supporting women in their career development and increasing female representation in leadership is a key aspect of Voya’s culture and reflects our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion."
Earlier this year, Voya Financial was named by Forbes as one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity for 2023 and by Newsweek as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for 2023. These recognitions were based on 2022 information and no fee was paid for consideration. To learn more, please visit https://www.voya.com/about-us/our-character/awards-and-recognition.
