That’s why we are proud to be named among Forbes’ ranking of Best Employers for Women! This is the first time that Republic has been named to the list, which was compiled by surveying 60,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. We ranked #101 of the 300 companies recognized – and we are the sole recycling and solid waste services provider on this year’s list.
The award celebrates companies that are supporting women in a range of areas, including career development and pay equity. Thank you to all of the women who are part of the Republic team - we appreciate you!

- We’re prioritizing female drivers, and in 2018, we launched SheDrives — a recruitment campaign designed to educate recruiters and hiring managers in an effort to broaden the driver candidate pool and increase the number of women hired for driver positions. In just one year, the hiring rate of women drivers increased by one-third, placing Republic above the national average for female drivers.
- We are launching a new Women of Republic Business Resource Group with a vision to create an inclusive culture that attracts, retains, develops and values top women talent throughout the organization. We have launched Women of Republic at HQ and are in the process of expanding to the field this year.
- We have partnered with the Network of Executive Women (NEW) to help further the development and success of our women leaders.
- We are excited to host a Signature Select program this year at our headquarters in Phoenix, AZ. Signature Select is a program geared towards preparing mid-level executives to thrive at the next level.
