2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies

Hall of Fame
Top 10

Allowing employees to make the choices that work best for them is a prime directive at this professional-services firm, which gives everyone up to 30 days of Paid Time Off per year to use as they like, and allows them to carry it over to the next year. In 2016, it added two “well-being days” to its 12-day holiday calendar, effectively lengthening winter breaks and emphasizing the idea that taking time for friends and family is essential. Free health, fitness and nutritional coaching are available to all, as are flexible work schedules, sabbaticals and an annual “well-being subsidy” (for massages, meditation classes, gym memberships, etc.) worth up to $500.

2017 NAFE Top Companies for Executive Women

*CEO is a woman

Top 10

Every year, this professional services firm hosts its Deloitte Women’s Leadership Launch, a high-level conference that invites female MBA and master’s degree candidates to come mingle with peers, network with senior executives, and meet experts in the industry. The event lets prospective hires know that the firm’s management is serious about helping women achieve—an idea that picks up added traction in three dedicated development initiatives (WINning New Business, WINning Career Strategies and the Ellen Gabriel Fellows program), which offer coaching and education to managers and senior managers. Flexible schedules, generous family leave and an active women’s network also appeal to newcomers.
