Forbes Magazine: Dyson one of ‘World’s Best Employers’ and in global top 100 ‘Female-Friendly Companies’
Dyson is one of the “World’s Best Employers” and a Top 100 “Female-Friendly Company” to work for, according to two major surveys published by Forbes, the respected US business magazine.
Forbes partnered with the market research company Statista to identify the best overall employers and those that excel in championing women at work.
For The World’s Best Employers list, 150,000 workers from 57 countries were surveyed to determine which companies excel in corporate impact and image, talent development, gender equality and social responsibility.
Respondents were asked to rate their “willingness to recommend their employers to friends and family and to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stood out”. Dyson came in the top quarter of the 800 highest-scoring companies from around the globe.
The World’s Top Female-Friendly Companies list was compiled after a survey of 85,000 women working at multinational institutions in 36 countries to determine which ones excel in gender equality, competitive pay and strong career advancement opportunities.
Roland Krueger, Chief Executive, said: “I would like to congratulate all Dyson People on our inclusion in the Forbes World’s Best Employers and Top Female-Friendly Companies lists. This reflects a lot of hard work recently and our strong global reputation, established over many years, as an employer of choice. We can build on this even more but it’s something of which we should be rightly proud.”
Laura Garza, Chief People Officer, said: “Dyson has increased the representation of women on our Executive committee by more than a third in the past year and at the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology, 37% of our undergraduates identify as female, compared to a national average of just over 15% on engineering university courses. This recognition by Forbes of such positive achievements is very welcome.”
