RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) announced today that it has been named one of the Forbes America’s Best Employers for Women for the second year in a row. The company ranks #68 among 300 employers on the list, and the achievement follows its recent inclusion on this year’s Forbes Best Employers in America list.
“The majority of employees at Lincoln Financial are women, and we are deeply committed to helping women – and all our employees – grow, thrive and succeed in their careers,” said Lisa M. Buckingham, chief people, place and brand officer for Lincoln Financial Group. “This recognition shows that our employees continue to celebrate Lincoln’s unique culture and unwavering commitment to their development and success. This makes us especially proud, and I would like to thank all of our company’s remarkable women for contributing to making Lincoln the kind of company deserving of this recognition!”
America’s Best Employers for Women have been chosen based on an independent survey from a vast sample of 40,000 U.S. employees, including 25,000 women, working for companies employing at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations. In this second annual survey hosted by Statistica, respondents were asked about working conditions, diversity and how likely they would be to recommend their employer to others. Female respondents were asked to rate the employers on parental leave, discrimination and pay equity. The final ranking reflects employers that both received the most recommendations and boast the most gender diverse boards and executive ranks.
“We empower and engage women to use their interests, perspective and experience to ensure Lincoln remains inclusive and relevant in our workplace, marketplace, and the communities in which we live and work,” said Allison Green, senior vice president, Diversity, Inclusion and Employee Engagement. “A key to remaining successful and competitive is our ability to attract, support, promote, and learn from our female talent at all levels of the organization. Understanding this and practicing it every day, we are very proud to be named a 2019 Forbes Best Employer for Women.”
Lincoln Financial’s commitment to its employees is further evidenced by other recent awards like the Forbes America’s Best Employers for 2019, Forbes Best Employers for Diversity for 2019, a perfect score on the 2019 CEI “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” and a perfect score on the 2018 Disability Equality Index®.
