13 St. Louis companies honored as 'Best Places to Work for Women'

This list has more than doubled from last year's honored companies, by the Women's Foundation of Greater St. Louis

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Thirteen organizations in St. Louis were named the top places for women to work, in the second annual report card from the Women's Foundation of Greater St. Louis.

Executive Director of the foundation Lisa Picker says four areas of workplace gender equity were looked at: Leadership, compensation, flexible work policies, and recruitment and retention programs.

"It's a little different than most best-places-to-work surveys because our honorees must demonstrate results in these areas," Picker says. 

The report looked at small, medium and large workforces and Picker says they wanted to look at objective criteria and outcomes – not employee opinion surveys.

The 13 honorees this year have women who make up 25-percent of the top 10-percent most highly compensated employees. Picker says in general, the numbers still are not good for equal pay and the data gets worse for women of color.

Here are the 13 companies being honored this year:
