ATLANTA, November 28, 2023 - Assurant (NYSE:AIZ), a leading global business services company that supports, protects and connects major consumer purchases, announced today that it has been recognized for the third consecutive year on the Forbes list of World’s Top Companies for Women 2023. This prestigious recognition is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on October 31, 2023, and can currently be viewed on the Forbes website.

“We are enormously proud to be part of the Forbes list of World’s Top Companies for Women,” said Assurant President and CEO Keith Demmings. “We are committed to fostering a diverse workplace that supports women at all stages of their careers and empowers their personal and professional growth.”

The World’s Top Companies for Women 2023 have been chosen from among multinational corporations that were evaluated in multiple globally administered independent surveys of approximately 70,000 women in 37 countries. More than 650,000 data points were collected. The final analysis is based on three scores:

  • Employer Brand Score: Women were asked to rate how their employer performs across a series of gender-related topics. In addition, they were asked to rate their overall willingness to recommend their employer and assess them across other, more general, workplace satisfaction questions. Women were also prompted to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively.
  • Public Opinion Score: A women-only public opinion survey measured how women perceive companies in terms of gender equality.
  • Leadership Score: Objective criteria (e.g., the presence of a female CEO and the share of board/executive committee positions filled by women) were gathered via extensive desk research.

As of December 31, 2022, Assurant’s global workforce is 60 percent women, 43 percent of managerial roles are held by women; and 31 percent of the Board of Directors are women, including the chair of the Board and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, as well as the chairs of the Finance and Risk, and Information Technology Committees. Assurant’s Women@Assurant enterprise resource group (ERG) is a thriving community of approximately 1,200 members supporting women with their personal and professional growth by providing mentorship, leadership development, and sponsorship to drive empowerment and engagement.
