Based on globally administered independent surveys covering a vast sample of more than 85,000 women employees from 36 countries across millions of data points.
List of the World’s Top Female Friendly Companies 2022
The ranking for World’s Top Female Friendly Companies 2022 is based on independent surveys of women employees around the world. Surveys were conducted in 36 countries using online access panels to gather reviews independently of the employers themselves. The results are also based on an additional women-only public opinion survey that measured how women perceive companies in terms of gender equality, as well as an objective leadership score (i.e., presence of women on board/executive committees).
Over 4,000 employers which operate in multiple world regions were identified through the survey.
The employee surveys conducted by Statista R are carried out independently of the potentially awarded employer brands. This reduces distortion of the results that could arise from non-anonymous surveys (e.g. social desirability in response behavior). The focus on willingness to recommend and on general questions about working conditions allows for comparability across heterogeneous sectors.
For data collection, Statista R programs detailed online questionnaires that ask survey participants about work-related topics. Statista R works with leading online access panels worldwide to identify suitable participants. During the survey, the incoming evaluations are checked for quality & validity (interview length, variances, inconsistencies) and sorted accordingly.
For the evaluation, Statista R applies a scoring model that primarily relies on the direct and indirect evaluation of the respondents. This includes both the evaluation of the respondent’s own employer as well as the evaluation of other employers from the same industry.
For each potential award-winning employer brand, the number of employees and the headquarters in the respective country are researched. This step serves as quality assurance and is presented as information in the publication.
