Three tech companies from the Philly area were recognized for their “high standards for equality” in Fortune Magazine and Great Place to Work’s Best Workplaces For Women 2017 list.
Coming in at No. 14, Jenkintown, Pa.-based adtech company Goodway Group tops the list of local businesses. It recently landed another accolade in a similar vein: The 2017 When Work Works Award for exemplary workplace practices.
Enterprise software giant SAP, which has its North American HQ in Newtown Square, Pa., came in at No. 21.
“This recognition wasn’t earned overnight,” said CMO Alicia Tillman in a blog post published Friday. “As a company, we’ve worked hard over the years to advance gender equality in the workplace. Credit is due to our leadership for investing in programs to promote inclusivity, but also to our employees – male and female – for their support of these programs and their commitment to one another.”

Comcast NBCUniversal, which employs several thousands in the Philly area, ranked at No. 31.
The list ran a national study of 400,000 employees, who ranked the companies they work for according to 50 different metrics like “ethical leadership, respectful and fair workplace interactions, great benefits and development and strong caring and personal support.”
Of note: The list considered only “Great Places to Work Certified Companies”. Certification will run the companies interested in applying for the list at least $995, according to the site.
