Working Mother magazine releases list of best companies for working moms”

Astellas was named one of the 2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies for its commitment to establishing a corporate culture supportive of working moms and their families. "Thirty years ago when we were first recognized by Working Mother, companies weren't offering these kinds of benefits", said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson.

The Working Mother Research Institute ranks data provided on a detailed application of more than 400 questions in the following clusters: paid time off and leave, workforce profile, benefits, women's issues and advancement, flexible work and company culture and work life programs.

"This year's winning companies know the value of keeping their employee moms engaged and supported", Meredith Bodgas, editor-in-chief of Working Mother magazine, said. SC Johnson continues to provide families with a variety of benefits to meet the needs of working parents, including a Childcare Learning Center, flexible work schedules, generous maternity, paternity and adoption leave, and a recreational center.

Inclusion in Working Mother's "100 Best Companies" list is the latest in a series of honors the company has received.

More than 95 percent of the 100 Best Companies nationwide offer paid maternity, paternity and adoption leave, compared to less than 30 percent of USA companies, with the average length of paid maternity leave growing from nine to 10 weeks over previous year.

About Novo Nordisk Novo Nordisk is a global health care company with more than 90 years of innovation and leadership in diabetes care.

There's a big difference between what some of these companies offer compared to most. The complete list of the 2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies can be found here. Recently, the company was selected by Great Place to Work and Fortune as a "Best Workplace for Women". Based in the U.S., the company is one of the world's leading manufacturers of household cleaning products and products for home storage, air care, pest control and shoe care, as well as professional products.

Johnson & Johnson, which has been named to the Working Mother 100 Best Companies list each year for 32 years, offers 15 weeks of fully paid leave for new mothers, and eight weeks of fully paid leave for fathers and adoptive parents.

Almost 90 percent of women at Prudential Financial, 28 years on the list, participate in mentoring programs.

Almost 80 percent of employees at Zoetis - on the list for four years - telecommute.

Working Mother magazine will showcase the selected companies at this year's WorkBeyond Summit from October 23-24 in New York City.
