For nearly 100 years, Pitney Bowes has had a diverse culture of

addition, women-led businesses drive 30 percent of the company's revenue.

"Diversity and inclusion continues to be a defining element of our
character and how we do business. To begin with, it's the right thing to
do. But diversity and inclusion are also critical to our business
success as we work to mirror the markets we serve and compete for the
very best talent we can attract," said Pitney Bowes Chief Executive
Officer Marc B. Lautenbach. "Our team is stronger – and our decisions
better – when we have people with different backgrounds, different
experiences and different points of view. This is why the data is very
clear that diverse and inclusive teams are keys to high-performing
organizations."

"Our culture is at the foundation of everything we do at Pitney Bowes.
We invest significantly in diversity and inclusion and our ability to
attract talent is reflective of that," said Pitney Bowes Chief Human
Resources Officer Johnna Torsone. "Women want what we all want – equal
opportunities, respect at the workplace, and values that are evident in
our work every day. We are honored to be named to the Forbes Magazine
List of America's Best Employers for Women 2018."

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to identify the
companies doing the most to support their female workforces with the
first-ever ranking of America's Best Employers For Women. To determine
the list, Statista surveyed 40,000 Americans, including 25,000 women,
working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees.

All the surveys were anonymous, allowing participants to openly share
their opinions. Respondents were first asked to rate their organizations
on criteria such as working conditions, diversity and how likely they'd
be to recommend their employer to others. Statista then asked female
respondents to rate their employers on factors such as parental leave,
discrimination and pay equity. These respondents were also asked to
nominate organizations in industries outside their own. The final list
ranks the 300 employers that both received the most recommendations and
boast the most gender diverse boards and executive ranks.
