HireLevel Recognized Among Best STL Employers for Women

Apr 2, 2019

HireLevel is being honored as one of the best employers in St. Louis for women, according to the Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis (WFSTL). The recognition is based on the results of the annual “Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard initiative” survey sent by WFSTL late last year.

“We are super excited to be recognized for best Employers in St. Louis for women in the workforce,” said Teresa Katubig, President & CEO.  “We have a strong commitment to developing women leaders and are proud to say we are a Certified Women Owned Business (WBE).”

Honorees were selected based on objective data submitted by the organizations about structural efforts and outcomes to advance women through compensation, leadership, flexible work policies, and recruitment and retention initiatives.

By recognizing employers who demonstrate a strong commitment to women, the Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard incentivizes organizations to improve their policies and practices for female employees while also researching and promoting best practices to recruit, retain and advance women.

One of the most significant programs that HireLevel offers to support female employees is their Baby at Work program, allowing new parents to bring newborns to work after parental leave. This program ensures the parent & baby integrate into their normal day-to-day successfully.

This year WFSTL is honoring Brown Smith Wallace, Enterprise Bank & Trust, MTM, Stinson Leonard Street, Washington University – St. Louis and Webster University in the category of companies with 100 or more employees. The companies with fewer than 100 employees being recognized by WFSTL are the National Council on Drug and Alcohol Abuse, HireLevel, Wyman Center, Safe Connections,The Simon Law Firm and Tueth, Keeney, Cooper, Mohan & Jackstadt, P.C. The honorees were selected in double-blind review process to eliminate bias in the process.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, women represent about 47% of the workforce, and hold a greater percentage of associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees than men. Despite this, women only occupy 21% of leadership or management positions in the country and on average earn 23% less than male counterparts.

WFSTL launched The Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard in 2017. For more information about WFSTL, visit  www.wfstl.org View the full 2018 Scorecard here.
