A List of Best Companies for Working Moms

The Working Mother has recently featured the profiles and backgrounds of the best companies ideal for working mothers. In their website, you can see the complete list of the Working Mother 100 Best Companies on an annual basis.

The organizers of the list from the website says that the assessment of the companies chosen are based on seven solid areas: the profile of the workforce, the benefits, issues on women and their advancement, on child care, on flexible work, parental leaves and the overall culture of the company.

Included in the 100 lists are Abbott, a pharmaceutical company; Accenture, a consulting firm; and Allsate, an insurance firm. Carol Evans, the president of the Working Mother Media also mentioned race and gender issues to play a big part in the assessment phase of the companies. Evans also says that regardless of the changes that the world is going through in terms of economic shifts, recessions and work settings, the responsibility of the mothers have not changed – whether they decide to work or not.
