Medline has been named to Forbes 2022 list of “America’s Best Employers for Women,” ranking 28th out of 400 companies recognized for “leading the way when it comes to trying to support women inside and outside their workforces.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected women around the nation,” according to Forbes. “Many women have left the workforce due to childcare demands, stress, low pay and a lack of opportunities. In many cases, Covid has amplified the burden felt by women.”
Forbes compiled the list based on independent survey results of 50,000 employed U.S. adults, including 30,000 women, at companies with at least 1,000 employees. The survey and evaluations were conducted by Statista, Inc. based on general work topics, including willingness to recommend; “topics relevant for women,” including parental leave, discrimination, representation of women, and career and pay equity; peer review of other employers; and diversity among top executives.
