Today (March 8) is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate the social, economic and political achievements of women. Here at Errand Solutions, we celebrate those things every day.
Errand Solutions is made up of 80% women, including our founder and CEO Marsha McVicker. When I was interviewing with the company, hearing that the CEO was a woman immediately piqued my interest because that’s not something you see very often in the corporate world. In addition, as someone who has previously experienced sexist comments in the workplace, I knew that type of behavior would never fly here. I was excited to join a team filled with talented and respected women and I couldn’t wait to learn more from them.
While I’m lucky to work for a woman-owned and operated business, it’s unfortunate that there aren’t more like it. Despite making up more than 50% of the population, only 4.6% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women. Furthermore, according to a CNN Money analysis, only 14.2% of the top five leadership positions at the companies in the S&P 500 are held by women.
Of course, there’s more to our company than just the women. Not only do we have plenty of amazing male co-workers as well (Hi Micky!), but we also have a great mission. Errand Solutions is a unique service that can help any company change the lives of their employees.
It also makes sense that as a mother herself, our CEO Marsha created a service that would especially benefit working mothers. Between running their everyday errands to helping them find the perfect nanny, Errand Solutions makes it easier for women to propel their career without falling behind on their motherhood duties. We make it possible for working mothers to sustain the work/life balance they desire.
If like me, you want to support a woman-owned company, give Errand Solutions a call to find out how we can help your company today. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312.475.3800.
