About the list

For the ranking, Forbes works with a market research firm statesman to draw data from a survey of 50,000 American employees—including 30,000 women and 20,000 men—working for businesses with at least 1,000 workers. All survey responses remained anonymous to encourage respondents to freely share their opinions.

Respondents were asked to rate their organizations on several criteria, including working conditions, diversity and how likely they were to recommend their employer.

Female respondents were then asked to rate their employers on several additional criteria, including parental leave, discrimination and fair pay. Women respondents were also asked to nominate organizations from other industries.

Forbes also considered the representation of women at executive and board level in each organization’s final score.

The final list includes 400 companies in 24 industries. The lists include healthcare employers in several categories, including “pharmaceuticals and biotechnology,” “healthcare and social services,” “healthcare equipment and services,” and “insurance.”

This year, Tampa General Hospital (TGH) took first place Forbes‘ Best Employers for Women list.

According to Forbes, TGH has a “strong track record of promoting women in senior management and providing benefits desired by female team members.”

The health system offers flexible work options, scholarships for continuing education, an employee emergency fund for workers in crisis, up to $600 in school aid grants per employee and free education and leadership development courses.

Notably, half of TGH’s C-suite executives and 70% of its SVPs are women — nearly double the average for other health systems, according to a recent report from McKinsey and Lean back.
