CIENCE Wins 2021 Best CEOs for Women: Comparably Award
Comparably, a leading workplace culture and compensation monitoring website, announced its winners of the 2021 Best CEOs for Women in July. CIENCE’s CEO John Girard proudly stands among the fifty top-ranked CEOs of large companies in the U.S., with an outstanding 95%+ approval rating.
“Our annual Best CEOs for Women list continues to shine an important light on the leaders that female employees rated as the best of the best," said Comparably CEO Jason Nazar. "Chief executives like John Girard create environments that support and encourage women, and we hope other leaders will be motivated to do the same within their own organizations.”
Comparably aims to provide more rewarding and transparent workplaces. Any employee can easily access compensation data, rate their company, leadership, and overall work experience. This data is also shown through the prism of various demographics: gender, age, ethnicity, tenure, industry, location, education, and company size.
The platform has become one of the fastest-growing SaaS solutions for employer branding and a trusted third-party site for workplace and salary data, most notably for its annual Best Places to Work series.
Companies are divided by size: small/mid-size and large. To become a participant, a large company (over 500 employees) has to have a minimum of 75 employee participants.
Comparably’s 2021 Best CEOs for Women was based on anonymous sentiment ratings from female employees about their CEO during a 12-month period. Based on 10 million ratings across 60,000 companies, these included feedback from women on the effectiveness and management style of the CEO. Every CEO on the list is in the top 5% of all CEOs rated by female employees.
Our leadership team gathered dozens of positive reviews from Comparably, including this shout-out from a female CIENCE employee:
“The team celebrates even small successes and everyone motivates each other to grow professionally and personally. Also, you are heard and you feel you belong to something bigger even if you are thousands of miles from each other. CIENCE embraces diversity found across the globe.”
CIENCE is proud to be led by such an amazing example of efficiency, kindness, and professional expertise shown by John Girard. We are even more excited that it was acknowledged by a leader like Comparably.
“This is truly one of the best honors I can receive as it gives me reassurance that our diversity and inclusion measures are working," said John Girard, CEO of CIENCE.
"Each year, the executive team and I examine our culture as it relates to diversity and inclusion, making sure we are staying at the forefront. Keeping a safe, well-balanced work environment has always been my number one goal at CIENCE. As the father to an amazing daughter, the brother to an amazing sister, the son to an amazing mother, and the husband to an amazing wife, I could not be more proud to receive this award.”
John Girard joined CIENCE as its CEO in 2017 with the goal of not only creating a viable and successful business but also spearheading a culture of respect and inclusivity.
"I'm excited to see John and CIENCE recognized in this way," said Rade Kemalova, Head of Sales Development at CIENCE. "I have been with CIENCE since the beginning, working directly with John on a variety of projects. He has always been supportive, even helping to create new positions in areas where I noticed that CIENCE needed help. I've been proud of the education and internal advancement opportunities available to women throughout the organization, as everyone at CIENCE truly has the same opportunity to shine.”
