At Yext, we offer a supportive and empowering place to build a career, and we’re proud to announce that Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine have included us on the list of 100 Best Workplaces for Women.
This list considered more than 400,000 employee surveys from hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. The ranking gauged women’s assessment of their organizations’ culture, leadership, fairness, and other elements essential for a great workplace.
Research from Great Place to Work® has shown that women are five times more likely to plan a long-term future with their employers when they say they’re treated as full members of the team — regardless of position. The Best Workplaces for Women also set themselves apart from competitors in other important ways: 95% of women at these organizations describe them as friendly, and the same say they’re proud to tell others where they work.
Empower, our women’s Employee Resource Group, has the mission to recruit, inspire, and advance women at Yext. Through community service, mentorship, and professional and business development, Empower propels diversity and inclusion to build a strong and growing internal network. As Yext rapidly expands its national and international footprint by continuing to hire and retain the best possible talent, Empower provides a network and community that maintains and improves internal policies and support systems for women at Yext.
As growth continues, we know our success depends on developing the full potential of our people. Alongside Empower, our other Employee Resource Groups — Equip, Embrace, and Express — help propel women with disabilities, women of color, and those in our LGBTQ community.
Fortune and Great Place to Work® have previously recognized Yext in the 2017 Best Workplaces in New York, 2017 Best Workplaces in Chicago, Great Place to Work® 2016 Best Small and Medium Workplaces, the 2017 Best Workplaces in Technology, and the Best Workplaces for Millennials 2016 lists.
