In a job market where women make 80-cents for every dollar a man earns, female workers say they want leaders who care about inclusivity, diversity and maternity leave, among other employee benefits.
Comparably, a career monitoring website, released a list Monday that spotlights the workforce leaders who are getting it right, according to women workers.
Comparably compiled data from female staffers among a pool of more than 50,000 U.S. companies and found the CEOs who ranked highest for women included the heads of the software companies Workfront and HubSpot, the IT service firm Insight Global and retailer Costco.
T-Mobile's John Legere was ranked best CEO among large companies.
"John (Legere) consistently ranked on Comparably as one of the absolute best leaders across many categories," said Comparably CEO Jason Nazar, who added that workers on Legere's team say the CEO is supportive of a wide range of benefits that affect women including parental leave and hiring a diverse pool of workers.
