What makes the 100 Best so great? We report on the individual efforts each one is making to ensure that parents—and particularly moms—feel valued and supported at work.
Our chart shows what each of the 100 Best Companies offers, and the Executive Summary contains aggregated data showing how the winners compare with companies nationwide.
For more than 30 years, Working Mother has honored the Best Companies for working moms—continuing the conversation about what companies should be doing to ensure that working families thrive.
The 2016 Working Mother 100 Best Companies application includes more than 400 questions on leave policies, workforce representation, benefits, childcare, advancement programs, flexibility policies and more. It surveys the availability and usage of programs, as well as the accountability of managers who oversee them. In selecting this year’s winning companies, we gave particular weight to representation of women, advancement programs and flex. All applicants receive feedback showing how they compare with other applicants; however, the names of applicants that do not make the list are kept confidential. Company profiles and data come from submitted applications and reflect 2015 data.
