HOUSTON– Transwestern announced that Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have named the commercial real estate firm one of the “100 Best Workplaces for Women” for the third consecutive year. Transwestern is the only third-party, full-service commercial real estate firm to be recognized.
“We are honored to again be recognized for our focus on developing the full potential of all our team members,” said Chip Clarke, President, Americas. “Raising the bar and empowering our team members to serve our clients and each other at the highest level is consistently reinforced throughout our organization, which has in turn fostered a culture of advocacy and opportunity for women at Transwestern.”
Transwestern has experienced firsthand how a diverse workforce cultivates a positive work environment and best equips its teams to deliver well-informed, flexible solutions to real estate owners, users and investors. As such, the company recruits women across all businesses, for all job functions and at all levels, and promotes women’s professional development and career advancement throughout their tenure. Of those surveyed in 2017, 97 percent say Transwestern has a great atmosphere, 96 percent believe there is great communication, and 95 percent feel there are great challenges for women.
The winning companies were selected based on 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 deserve recognition for crafting environments where men and women alike can bring their best selves to work each day,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
The Best Workplaces for Women ranking is part of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified organizations.
