100 Best Workplaces for Women
“Workiva is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace,” said Matt Rizai, Chairman and CEO of Workiva. “Our employees are encouraged to freely share ideas and develop mutual respect. We believe that diverse teams build better solutions with greater success.”
“I’m excited that Workiva is recognized as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women in the country,” said Iowa Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds. “Two years ago, I worked with their leadership to be a partner in STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics] education in our state. STEM is key to Iowa’s ability to innovate and remain competitive, now and in the future. This award is a testament to Workiva's involvement in promoting the value of STEM careers.”
“This is another validation of what we’ve known about Workiva for some time – it is a great Iowa company that fosters an environment where employees can succeed,” said Debi Durham, Director of the Iowa Economic Development Authority. “Being recognized as one of the top workplaces for women is quite an honor, but not a surprise!”
“There’s a strong correlation between being able to talk openly with company executives and feeling like a workplace is fair,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Traditionally, communication channels with leaders have been less available to women than to men. The Best Workplaces for Women do well at paving the way for those open dialogs, and as a result, women are more likely to feel they get fair consideration in their jobs and careers. Congratulations to these great companies. They are showing everyone how to create a Great Place to Work For ALL.”
Workiva also recently ranked #4 on the 10 Best Large Workplaces in Technology list, #6 on the 50 Best Workplaces for Camaraderie list and #34 on the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials list by Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine.
