December 6, 2018

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 6, 2018--Equity Residential (NYSE: EQR) today announced that the Company has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Company as one of the 100 Best Places to Work in 2019 among all U.S. large companies. With an overall rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars, Equity Residential was the top-rated real estate company in this year’s results. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 11th year, is based solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies on Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites.

“We are honored to be a Glassdoor 2019 Best Places to Work winner as this recognition is driven by feedback from our employees and reflects the work that we do every day to create a culture and work environment that help employees thrive, grow and enjoy the ride along the way,” said Mark J. Parrell, Equity Residential’s President and CEO-designate.

On Glassdoor, current and former employees voluntarily and anonymously share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what a specific job may be like at a particular company. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management and work/life balance. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.

Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work were determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between October 23, 2017 and October 21, 2018. To be considered for the large category, a company must have had at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 ratings across each of the eight workplace attributes from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled using Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, led by its Economic Research Team and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
