Sheetz has been named one of the Best Workplaces for Women by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
Sheetz has been included on the 2016 Best Workplaces for Women list, which is based on data collected by Great Place to Work and Fortune
Sheetz has been ranked twice on the list, which is based on employees’ assessments of communications with management, options for development and training, and support for work/life balance, among other factors. The ranking also takes into account how well-represented women are within the workforce overall and in management and executive positions.
“There’s a strong correlation between being able to talk openly with company executives and feeling like a workplace is fair,” said Michael 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.”
Both women and men at Best Workplaces for Women feel their employers provide ample opportunities to grow and advance in their careers, and provide them with the flexibility they want to balance their work and personal lives.
“We are a family owned and operated company and that is a factor on how we make decisions as a company. We know to have a company operate 24/7, our employees need to feel engaged and valued. Creating an environment that supports people in and outside of work isn’t just an issue for women, it’s an issue for all employees, and our goal is to make sure that we have created programs at Sheetz to achieve that,” said Joe Sheetz, CEO Sheetz.
The Best Workplaces for Women ranking is part of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work-certified organizations.
