GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Steelcase has been included on the 2022 Forbes List for Best Employers for Women, ranking 13 out of 400 organizations recognized.

The Best Employers for Women have been identified in an independent survey of 50,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S. The sample included more than 30,000 women. The survey was conducted using several online access panels, providing a representative sample of the U.S. workforce.

This award recognizes companies who rank highly in the areas of parental leave, family support, flexibility, inclusive hiring practices, representation, career and pay equity.

“At Steelcase, we put our people at the center of everything we do. We aspire every day to foster a culture of belonging where women can thrive. We seek to provide rich, professional growth pathways and an environment that supports all employees’ needs to balance life and work commitments,” said Donna Flynn, vice president, global talent management. “Currently, women make up 33% of top executive positions at Steelcase and our Board of Directors is comprised of 64% of women. We are honored to be included on this year’s list of best places to work for women, alongside so many other great organizations.”

Steelcase, one of the world’s largest office furniture manufacturers, ranked #5 on the FDMC 300 list of leading woodworking companies with nearly $2.96 billion in sales.

Earlier this year, Steelcase was named to Forbes’ List of America’s Best Large Employers for companies with at least 1,000 employees, ranking 147 out of the 500 companies and was recognized on Forbes’ List of Best Employers for New Grads, ranking 43 out of 500 companies. In addition to the Forbes awards, Steelcase has been recognized by its peers and third-party organizations around the world for its commitments to people, the planet and our communities.
