2017 NAFE Top Companies for Executive Women

Hall of Fame

Family-friendly policies increase executive retention at this consumer goods company. Management just increased its fully paid maternity and adoption leave to 16 weeks and extended leave for other new parents to four paid weeks. If they like, employees can take a year off (with job guarantee) after the arrival of a child. Assignment planning is incorporated into the leave process, which relieves moms who otherwise might have worried about what to expect workwise on return. They also remain under consideration for the same promotions and high-potential programs as they did before taking time off. Inclusive leadership programs and a new diversity and inclusion advisory board celebrate employees’ differences.
