RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) announced today that it has been named one of the 2018 Forbes Best Employers for Women. The company ranks #52 among 300 employers on the list, and the achievement follows its recent inclusion on this year’s Forbes Best Employers in America list.
“At Lincoln Financial, we strive for women to feel empowered to lead, inspired to learn, and driven to meet new challenges,” said Lisa M. Buckingham, chief people, place and brand officer for Lincoln Financial Group. “We are deeply committed to a positive workplace culture, one that provides solutions to help women take charge of their careers, as well as find balance for the things that matter most in their lives. We are so incredibly honored to receive this recognition, and I would like to thank all of our company’s amazing women for their many contributions that have led to Lincoln’s success!”
To determine the list, Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista, which surveyed 40,000 Americans, 25,000 of them women, working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. 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 have a vibrant workforce comprised of many unique perspectives to advance our position in the marketplace and provide support to our local communities,” said Allison Green, senior vice president, Diversity, Inclusion and Employee Engagement. “Women continue to provide the crucial insight, decision-making and results that solidify our position as an industry leader. Our women stand strong in enabling us to actualize Lincoln’s vision moving forward.”
