Washington, DC: Great Places to Work™ announced today that TCG is among the Best Workplaces™ for Women in the country. TCG is ranked third in the D.C. Metro area, and is the only District-based company on the list.
The award is bestowed to businesses based on employees’ responses to an anonymous survey conducted by the analysts at Great Places to Work. Great Places to Work uses the feedback to develop metrics on TCG, ranging from diversity among colleagues, cross-comparison of the survey to male counterparts, and representation. Despite being a Certified Great Place to Work™ for the past three years, this is TCG’s first time being awarded with distinction among women.
“The award is a testament to TCG’s Positively Distinct company culture,” said Lisa Alferieff, TCG’s Chief Operating Officer. “We pride ourselves on helping our employees be their best selves, at work and outside of work. We are pleased to hear that the women in our company are happily leading the way in their work at TCG!”
In addition to the remarks made in a company-wide employee survey, analysts conducted an assessment of the pay equity among men and women at TCG, female representation in management, and family-friendly benefits that TCG provides employees — particularly those that benefit new parents, such as telecommuting and flexible work schedules.
Parent-employees also have the option of using TCG’s emergency daycare assistance benefit, which provides more stability to each parent in tight situations. Other highlights that make TCG a great workplace for women include TCG’s three weeks of paid parental leave, company-paid short- and long-term disability insurance, and the adoption assistance program.
Great Places to Work analyzes the patterns relative to each organization’s size, workforce make-up, and what’s typical in each industry and region. They also consider employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders. Being a Best Workplace for Women means that women at TCG report that the organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™, and that all TCG employees are able to reach their full potential, no matter who they are or what they do.
