Northrop Grumman ranked among Best Employers for Women

 July 29, 2021

The brilliant women of Northrop Grumman define possible every day.

The company is honored to be featured on the Forbes Best Employers for Women List, a prestigious award presented by Forbes and Statista Inc.

In the same year, Northrop Grumman has also been named as a Forbes' Best Employer for Diversity in America.

Ranking companies based on employee recommendations

The Best Employers for Women were chosen based on a Statista survey of 50,000 Americans, including 30,000 women, working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. All the surveys were anonymous, allowing participants to openly share their opinions.

Respondents were first asked to rate their organizations on criteria such as working conditions, diversity and how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others.

These responses were reviewed for potential gender gaps. So if women, for example, rated an organization poorly on diversity, but men rated it highly, Statista would take that into account and adjust the company’s score accordingly.

The participants assessed their companies according to the following criteria: Discrimination, Family Support, Flexibility, Parental Leave, Pay Equity, and Representation & Career. These respondents were also asked to nominate organizations in industries outside their own.

The final list ranks the 300 employers that both received the most recommendations and boast the most gender-diverse boards and executive ranks.
