From our kids’ day care providers to our baristas to our grandmothers’ nursing home attendants, many of the women who enable professional working moms to thrive face tough challenges when it comes to their own work life needs. The Best Companies for Hourly Workers go the extra mile to make sure their employees have stability, predictability and benefits, so they can succeed at their jobs without disrupting their family lives.
The Best Companies for Hourly Workers application was developed in partnership with Corporate Voices for Working Families, an organization devoted to improving the lives of working families. It includes more than 300 questions about the benefits and programs that hourly workers have access to. To be eligible, companies must have a minimum of 500 employees in the United States, and at least 50% of those workers must be hourly (nonexempt).
The Working Mother Research Institute creates a scoring algorithm based on the previous year’s benchmark results, which then determines the winners. Company profiles are pulled from the survey applications and reflect 2011 data.
