Forbes Ranks Estes As One Of America’s Best Large Employers Of 2024

RICHMOND, VA–Forbes has again named Estes as one of America's Best Large Employers. Estes was previously included on Forbes’ 2022, 2019, 2018, and 2016 rankings and named one of the Best Employers for Women in 2023.

Forbes’ America’s Best Employers list is based on an independent survey of over 60,000 employees covering 25 industries. Survey participants worked for companies with at least 1,000 people in their U.S. locations, and they responded to open-ended questions about their employer.

“Estes’ success is rooted in our employees and the ingenuity, collaboration and dedication they bring every day,” said Webb Estes, president and COO. “It’s our job to ensure Estes remains a company that recognizes and supports their work and professional growth. This award affirms our efforts toward that mission and aligns with what our employees need and expect from Estes.”

“Being a family-focused company has driven our success for more than 92 years and is the guiding principle in all the ways we support our employees,” said Sara Graf, vice president of sustainability, culture, and communications. “We take pride in creating a welcoming, supportive culture that values each and every person on the team, and we look forward to continuing to develop our employee engagement efforts to ensure our team remains among the industry’s best.”
