The 2011 Working Mother Best Companies for Hourly Workers application was created in partnership with Corporate Voices for Working Families, a Washington, DC–based nonprofit membership organization. It includes some 450 questions on workforce; company culture; benefits; training, development and advancement programs; flexibility policies; paid time off and more. It surveys the availability and usage of programs, as well as the accountability of managers who oversee them.
The Working Mother Research Institute creates a scoring algorithm based on the previous year’s benchmark results, which then determines the winners. All applicants receive feedback showing how they compare to other applicants; however, the names of applicants that do not make the list are kept confidential. Company profiles are culled from the survey applications and reflect 2009 data.
