Mary Kay Inc. recently announced that it has been recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Midsize Employers 2019.
Mary Kay is ranked number 97 of the 500 companies on the list.
“More than 55 years ago, our founder, Mary Kay Ash, began her dream company on a very solid foundation: the Golden Rule,” said Melinda Foster Sellers, chief people officer at Mary Kay. “Mary Kay Ash believed that treating each other with mutual kindness and respect is not only required, but naturally leads to a strong, fair and healthy working environment. Our employees demonstrate this in their work around the world each day.”
In collaboration with analytics firm Statista, Forbes selected America’s best employers based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 50,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations. The surveys were administered in a series of online panels and provide a representative sample of the U.S. workforce. Employees were asked 35 questions about work related topics such as working conditions, salary, potential for development and company image. The rate of agreement/disagreement regarding the statements was measured on a 5-point Likert scale.
“We’re so proud to be recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Midsize Employers 2019,” added Sellers. “Our corporate culture is built around recognition, work-life balance and corporate stewardship. As Mary Kay used to say: ‘when everybody is motivated to serve others, everyone benefits.”
