How about some good news for a change? Our 2009 Working mother 100 Best Companies are standing tough in their support of working families.
Despite the layoffs, cutbacks and general economic maladies the country is facing, these work-life superstars continue to spend on health care, child care and work/life benefits. In fact, spending has actually increased at many of our winning companies, with about a third reporting that added funds have gone to new and improved programs. Now that’s change we can believe in!
We have learned that how, when and where you work aren’t as important as the quality of the work you produce. A full 100 percent of this year’s winning companies offer telecommuting and flextime schedules, 98 percent offer job-sharing, and 94 percent offer compressed workweeks. These companies are also committed to helping working parents with their child-care needs: 86 percent provide backup care, and 62 percent provide sick-child care. But perhaps even more important is the family-friendly culture they all continually strive to create. We salute these winners and their ongoing efforts to help employees manage their busy lives.
