Westat is on the 2021 Forbes Best Employers for Women list, having been identified in an independent survey from a sample of approximately 50,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S. The sample included 30,000+ women. Westat joins 300 companies receiving the highest total scores and is ranked 1 of only 10 awarded employers in the “Professional Services” industry subcategory.
The survey was conducted using several online access panels, providing a representative sample of the U.S. workforce. Each employee was asked which firm or institution he or she works for in an open-ended question and with an autofill option.
“Westat places high value on providing a work environment that is inclusive and collaborative, and provides the opportunity for all staff to develop and succeed,” notes President and CEO Scott Royal, Ph.D. “We are proud that our staff have provided this feedback in recognition of Westat.”
