Seramount Again Names FleishmanHillard a 2022 Top 10 Company for Executive Women
ST. LOUIS, June 7, 2022 — FleishmanHillard was named in the Top 10 of Seramount’s 2022 Top Companies for Executive Women list today, it’s seventh consecutive year in the Top 10 and 13th year on the list. Seramount, part of EAB, continues to explore ways organizations can move more women into top positions, while highlighting the successes at these trailblazing companies.
This is the most definitive list of top workplaces for women who want to advance through the corporate ranks. It celebrates companies that champion women’s advancement, with a focus on succession planning, profit-and-loss roles, gender pay parity, support programs and flexibility programs.
“FleishmanHillard is thrilled to again be recognized as a Top 10 Company for Executive Women,” said John Saunders, president and CEO of FleishmanHillard. “But it is not by accident – we’ve moved DE&I to the center of our business and established a rigorous measurement process to guarantee our continued momentum. Our culture, rooted in diverse perspectives, strives to be the change we want to see in the world. And we won’t settle for anything less.”
“We are pleased to report that our 2022 list of Top Companies for Executive Women shows a small increase from 2021 in the number of women in senior leadership roles and in the prevalence of policies to train and advance them,” says Betty Spence, PhD, Head, Women’s Advancement at Seramount. “We are relieved to learn that women continued to move into leadership despite the pandemic, and we hope that in today’s hybrid work environment, women’s advancement will progress at an even faster pace.”
FleishmanHillard has long been committed to supporting and creating clear leadership and career pathing opportunities for women. Examples of these outcomes include:
- 72% of U.S. offices are women-led
- 68% of the leadership Cabinet is female
- 50% of C-suite positions are held by women
- 63% of FleishmanHillard’s global practice and sector groups are led by women
The 2022 Top 75 Companies application includes more than 200 questions on pertinent topics, including female representation at all levels, but focuses on the corporate officer and profit-and-loss leadership ranks. The application, based on 2021 data, tracks and examines how many employees have access to programs and policies that promote advancement of women and how many female employees take advantage of them, as well as how companies train managers to help women advance. To be considered, companies must have a minimum of two women on their boards of directors and at least 500 US employees.
