About the Designation and Program

Companies are challenged with attracting, motivating, retaining and elevating top-tier sales talent more than ever, especially high-performing women in sales.

With the IES Premier Women in Sales Employer designation and program, the IES recognizes companies that are doing great things to make themselves exceptional employers for women in sales. It is the only designation that acknowledges companies that have made supporting the careers of their women in sales a priority.

The costs of losing a high-quality performer can be extreme and the challenges of bringing on new talent are exorbitant. Women in sales are looking for companies that have their best interests at hand, are socially conscious, and have opportunities for career growth.

The companies that are recognized with the PWISE designation will partner with the IES to develop best practices and standard for DEI excellence and high achievement.

The IES will be accepting applications from employers throughout the year.

If your company is a premier women in sales employer, apply now. If you’re a sales professional looking for an excellent place to work, consider the companies in the guide.

Achieving the Designation

There is no charge for companies to apply to become an IES Premier Women in Sales Employer (PWISE). There is no charge to be placed in the guide or to display the badge once a company achieves “IES Premier Women in Sales Employer” status. The IES is uniquely positioned to recognize companies that are exceptional for salespeople to work. To achieve the designation, you must be an IES partner.

Any company can apply for the IES Premier Women in Sales Employer designation. Once the IES has confirmed that the 10-question application form has been completely  filled out, it will be sent to a 3-person judging committee. The judges will review each of the 10 questions, with the applying company’s name hidden. If the acceptance score is achieved, the company will be invited to accept this designation and be included on the web site and in the guide. They will also be invited to participate in our DEI Roundtables where we’ll be creating best practices for companies to support their women in sales.

The pdf guide and website will be updated on an on-going basis to recognize new companies that achieve this designation. Designations will be acknowledged for the year. For example, the 2023 designation will start in January and continue through December. Companies need to reapply each year to maintain PWISE status.
