SAS Institute Canada Inc. on the 2020 List of Best Workplaces™ for Women
SAS Institute Canada Inc. is proud to announce that our organization has been named on the 2020 list of Best Workplaces™ for Women. SAS Institute Canada Inc. received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®.
“According to the Harvard Business Review, 52 percent of women in STEM leave the field and never come back, said Cameron Dow, President of SAS Canada. “Which is why SAS is committed to changing mindsets and creating paths of opportunity for women by fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce that empowers women for innovation and business success that is as critical to our success as it is theirs.”
In 2018 SAS Canada launched the Women in Analytics Network to strengthen diversity in the analytics field. This program leverages the SAS values of authenticity, value for work/life balance and passion to build a community of women, inside and outside of SAS, who work to advocate for women in the field of analytics. The SAS Women in Analytics Network was also showcased as a best practice in joint research released by Great Place to Work® and the WE EMPOWER programme of the UN Women, European Union and the International Labour Organization, read the report here: Empowering Women for Innovation and Business Success.
The list of Best Workplaces™ for Women is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®. The data has a 90% confidence and a plus or minus 5% margin of error.
To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, have a minimum of 15 female employees, and at least 90% of employees agree that their workplace is safe and people are treated fairly regardless of their gender. We determined the best based on the overall Trust Index score from female respondents, as well as their programs and practices that promote the fair treatment and advancement of women.
