ACT Environmental Services is honored to announce that after surveying more than 135,000 female employees, Fortune magazine and Great Place To Work® have recognized ACT as one of the country’s top workplaces for women! ACT is the highest-ranked environmental services company on the list.
We at ACT consider this honor especially noteworthy because the recognition is based on women’s own assessments of the quality and fairness of our workplace. As evidence by ACT’s survey results, 98% of our employees take a great sense of pride in their work, and 98% report that they are able to take time off from work when they think it’s necessary. This flexibility is just one indication of our spirit of inclusion when it comes to the unique challenges faced by women in the workforce.
“At ACT, we understand how important it is to create a work environment that supports all of our staff,” said President Walter H. Singer. “Ranking on Fortune and Great Place To Work’s 100 Best Workplaces for Women only reinforces our commitment to a workplace that recognizes the unique life circumstances of each of our employees. We look forward to continuing this mission in the years to come.”
About the methodology: women surveyed considered factors including the fairness of their company’s promotions, 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. Scores also took into account how well-represented women are within the workforce, management and executive positions; how positively women experience their workplace’s fairness; and how favorable women’s experiences are compared to the 138,000 men also surveyed.
