Forbes: WESCO Among Best Employers

WESCO International Inc. is one of the World’s Best Employers and one of America’s Best Employers for Women, magazine says.
On June 9, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based electrical and industrial supplies distributor WESCO International announced the upcoming retirement of Ted Dosch, executive vice president, strategy and chief transformation officer, effective August 5 of this year. Dosch has served in this position since June 2020 upon the completion of Wesco’s merger with Anixter.

Forbes Magazine says Pittsburgh-based WESCO International Inc. is among the World’s Best Employers and one of America’s Best Employers for Women.

The awards were presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., a statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

The awards were selected based on independent surveys of 150,000 full-time and part-time workers from 58 countries around the world.

Respondents were asked to rate the companies on aspects such as image, economic footprint, talent development, gender equality and social responsibility. The 750 companies that received the highest total scores made the final list.

The Forbes America’s Best Employers for Women ranking is granted to only 300 companies in the U.S. That award is based on market research by Statista Inc., as well as an independent survey of 50,000 Americans, including 30,000 women, working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees.

The survey is based on anonymous feedback and examines opinions on factors such as working conditions, parental leave, diversity, discrimination and pay equity.

“At WESCO, our mission is to build, connect, power and protect the world, and we believe that people are our most important asset,” said John Engel, chairman, president and CEO of WESCO. “We are fully committed to building an inclusive company culture that leverages our diversity and that is essential to achieving our vision to be the best tech-enabled, supply-chain solutions provider in the world. We benefit from having people with different talents, experiences and mindsets that enable us to innovate with speed and agility, and deliver superior value.”
