Atlanta (March 29, 2023) – Piedmont is one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women for 2023 based on a survey by Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group.
The Newsweek and Plant-A Group survey collected more than 224,000 reviews of U.S. companies that employ 1,000 or more employees and identified the top 600 companies in the United States for women. The evaluation and scoring factored in women in leadership, company work-life balance, training, career progression for women and more.
“We are excited to see Piedmont recognized by Newsweek as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women,” Piedmont Healthcare President and CEO Kevin Brown said. “Our people are our greatest asset and it is rewarding to be recognized for our efforts to make Piedmont a great work environment. As we say, ‘You will come to Piedmont for the job, but you will stay for the people that you work with.’”
Added Piedmont Chief Human Resources Officer Vicki Cansler: “March is Women’s History Month and Piedmont’s workforce is filled with women making history. It is exciting to receive this recognition this month from a nationally-respected brand such as Newsweek.”
Piedmont Executive Director of Diversity and Inclusion Jo Anne Hill noted that Piedmont’s workforce is comprised of 80 percent women.
“Piedmont knows and values the contributions women make here,” Hill said. “Piedmont is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we are proud to be recognized as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women this year.”
