100 Best Companies for Working Moms
When you return to work, the ease of your transition often has to do with the support you get from your co-workers and your employer. Certain companies have policies in place that provide working moms with the flexibility to raise a family and have a great career.
On Sept. 14, 2010, Working Mothers Magazine released its annual
2010 Working Mother 100 Best Companies.
The annual list surveys companies across the United States, asking them over 600 questions about the benefits they offer working moms to help them succeed.
Questions covered topics in the areas of workforce representation, childcare, flexibility programs and usage, leave policies, and accountability of managers. They also weighted childcare, paid time off, flexibility and leaves higher to determine which employers were exceeding minimum standards.
This is the 25th year that Working Mother Magazine has conducted the Working Mother 100 Best Companies survey and reported on its results. The first list came out in 1986 and featured only 30 companies. By 1992, it grew to 100 companies.
The top 10 on the list of 100 Best Companies for 2010 are:
- Bank of America
- Discovery Communications
- Ernst & Young
- General Mills
- University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics
- WellStar Health System
Is your company on the list? If you are having trouble transitioning back to work after having your twins or multiples, you may want to consider seeking a position at a company with more family-friendly policies and benefits. The 2010 Working Mother 100 Best Companies list is a good place to start.
