Spry Digital was one of 16 organizations honored by the Women’s Foundation of St. Louis as part of its Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard Initiative. The honor recognizes employers who demonstrate a strong commitment to women in the workplace.
“Since our early beginnings, Spry Digital has valued and championed for gender equality in the workplace, especially in technology. As a woman-owned business, we believe in the importance of clearly defining and implementing policies to support women in the workplace. Only through action and leadership can we hope to have an inclusive, supportive environment for all employees,” said Sheila Burkett, chief executive officer.
Honorees were selected based on data submitted about structural efforts and outcomes to advance women through compensation, leadership, flexible work policies and recruitment and retention initiatives.
Spry Digital actively works on building team strengths based on different experiences to create inclusive and progressive company values. Notably, Spry has developed a number of policies over the past year to better establish an equitable workplace for everyone. Most significantly, it has implemented a new family leave policy which allows paid time off for both mothers and fathers.
Half of Spry Digital’s employees are women, including both the chief executive officer and the chief technology officer.
“We like to say that 50 percent of our workforce are women, but 100 percent of our workforce are the best person for the job,” adds Burkett. “Our atmosphere makes Spry Digital both a great place to work and a great place to bring your work.”
