KeHE Distributors® is leading the charge in leveling the playing field for the women in our industry, and Forbes has taken notice. The distributor was recently named as one of America’s Best Employers For Women in Forbes’ annual ranking.
“We pride ourselves on serving to make lives better, and that starts with our employees,” said Jenn Ricks, Executive Vice President of Human Resources. “Through our Civility Code—listing empathy, trust, equality, and ownership as four key pillars—we demand all employees treat everyone with dignity and respect and address any incivility with courage.”
Forbes teamed up with market research company Statista to identify the companies leading the way by supporting women inside and outside their workforces.
According to the release, 30,000 women and 20,000 men in America who work for businesses with at least 1,000 employees were surveyed. Respondents were asked to rate their organization on criteria such as working conditions, diversity, and if they would recommend their employer to others. Statista additionally asked female respondents to rate their employers on factors such as parental leave, discrimination, pay equality, and nominate organizations in industries outside their own. Executive and Board-level representation was also factored into the score.
KeHE, which is dedicated to the well-being of its employees and ensures that all employees are given the resources they need to thrive, came out as one of the top companies to make the list.
“Being an Executive Director of Sales and a Co-Chairwoman on Women Empowered at KeHE, I can attest to the fact that this is an incredible place to work,” commented Amber Mahin-Hammond. “Having relationships with the employees here, I have an inside look at our women’s sense of inclusion and belonging. It is wonderful to see the brand recognized for the dedication we put towards ensuring KeHE is the best place for women to work.”
The company ensures equal opportunity for all employees and enforces an inclusive work environment throughout all departments.
