"At Edmunds, we believe in upholding an employee-first work environment that fosters innovation, collaboration and diversity of thought," said Edmunds CEO Avi Steinlauf. "This award is a great honor for our company and truly highlights the dedication of our Employment and Workplace Experience teams toward making Edmunds a great place to work for everyone."

The facility features amenities such as free breakfasts and lunches; a mother's room with a hospital-grade breast pump; bright, colorful, open workspaces; and informal meeting places that encourage collaboration.

Ninety-five percent of women at organizations recognized as the Best Workplaces for Women say their workplace is friendly, and they are proud to tell others where they work.

"The Best Workplaces for Women deserve recognition for crafting environments where men and women alike can bring their best selves to work each day," said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.

About the Best Workplaces for Women

The ranking was drawn from surveys of more than 400,000 U.S. employees at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations, assessing them on:

  • Key metrics for a great workplace. Great Place to Work analyzed how women rated their organizations in more than 50 areas, including respect, fairness, management and camaraderie.
  • Gender comparison. The ranking considered women's survey results compared to their colleagues' to ensure women had as positive an experience as men. This took into account an index of factors where women often lag their peers, such as access to meaningful work, fair pay and plans for a future with their organizations.
  • Consistent experiences in a diverse group. Great Place to Work also analyzed demographic patterns to ensure companies created great workplaces for all women, regardless of who they are or what jobs they do.

Surveys were conducted anonymously at each organization and women's results achieved at least a 95 percent confidence level and a 7 percent margin of error or less. Organizations needed to employ at least 50 women to be considered.
