Camden, N.J., August 8, 2022 – NFI, a leading supply chain provider, was recognized by Forbes as one of the Best Employers for Women in the U.S. for 2022. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. NFI ranks #38 among the 400 employers on the list and is listed as the top Supply Chain company. This is the first time NFI has received this designation. 

“Family is our first value at NFI, and to us, that means having a culture where all employees feel they belong,” said Sid Brown, NFI CEO. “The work of diversity and inclusion (D&I) is never done, but ranking as the top supply chain company for women demonstrates NFI’s commitment to D&I and the progress we have made.”

The best employers for women were chosen based on an independent survey of 50,000 employees currently employed at companies with at least 1,000 workers in their U.S. operations. The evaluation was based on different criteria, including direct recommendations, indirect recommendations, and diversity among top executives. 

With a commitment to D&I, last year, NFI expanded its benefits to include paid parental leave for the birth or adoption of a child. NFI also has a long-standing commitment to professional development that accelerates the advancement of women.

“NFI’s commitment to D&I and development opportunities for all employees is what sets NFI apart,” shared Nancy Stefanowicz, CHRO at NFI. “We continue to foster a culture that supports women to grow personally and professionally.”
