SAS remains among Best Workplaces for Women
Professional development, balance and benefits help women balance career and personal life
SAS is one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women, according to Fortune magazine. Nearly half of SAS’ US workforce, women represent 40 percent of management and executive positions.
SAS actively develops and engages women within the company, offering training, consultation, mentoring and networking opportunities that address the needs of women in the workplace. Programs like the Women’s Initiative Network (WIN) empower, encourage and inspire women to pursue excellence in their careers. WIN members also serve as ambassadors for SAS in area schools and businesses, and advocates for careers in science and technology.
SAS also recognizes that recruiting and retaining women and minorities in technology benefits not only the company, but its customers, as well. The company’s R3 summer student program, for example, enables students to gain on-the-go job experience by working side-by-side with SAS managers on challenging projects.
For 40 years, SAS has set the standard for workplace culture by fostering an environment that helps employees balance the challenges – and opportunities – of career and personal life. The company’s many on-site benefits include a free recreation and fitness center and free health care center with a full-service pharmacy. Services particularly beneficial to working mothers include subsidized child care, meals to go, parenting workshops, lactation consultants, and work/life counselors and seminars. Add to that numerous on-site convenience services, such as dry cleaning, alterations and subsidized café meals, and it’s clear why SAS appeals so strongly to both male and female job candidates.
A staple on Fortune’s list of Best Places to Work in the US since the list’s inception, the business analytics leader is also considered one of Forbes’ Best Employers in America. Recognition extends globally, with regular appearances on Great Place to Work’s lists of top multinational workplaces as well as on individual country listings worldwide. SAS also was recently named among the 2016 Best Places to Work for Recent Grads and Fortune’s Best Places to Work for Millennials.
SAS is the leader in analytics. Through innovative analytics, business intelligence and data management software and services, SAS helps customers at more than 83,000 sites make better decisions faster. Since 1976, SAS has been giving customers around the world THE POWER TO KNOW®.
