SC Johnson Named a 2012 Best Company for Working Mothers for the 24th Time
RACINE, Wis., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Today SC Johnson was recognized for the 24(th) time as one of the “100 Best Companies for Working Mothers” by Working Mother magazine. The publication today released its 27(th) annual list of family-friendly U.S. companies.
“We are honored to be recognized again by Working Mother magazine on this important list, because it speaks volumes to what we aspire to as a company and what we believe in,” said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson. “This recognition emphasizes and reinforces the importance we place on people and workplace excellence and we’re thrilled to be recognized among these other great companies.”
In today’s fast-paced world where six in 10 women work outside the home and American households face increasing economic pressures, it becomes more difficult to manage the responsibilities of parenting and work(1). SC Johnson programs like the Childcare Learning Center, parental leave and flexible work arrangements provide a welcome and necessary resource for families looking to balance personal and professional responsibilities.
Carol Evans, president of Working Mother Media, says, “This year’s 100 Best Companies are leading the way for the rest of the nation. They have created not only essential benefits, like flexible work options and telecommuting, but have also shown their commitment in new ways like elder care referral and legal assistance to help busy parents manage their personal lives as well as their careers.”
Working Mother rewarded companies for their wide array of progressive workplace programs, including child care, flexibility, advancement and paid family leave. This is the 27(th) year Working Mother has recognized organizations for their initiatives.
The 100 Best Companies will be celebrated at this year’s Working Mother 100 Best Companies WorkLife Congress October 8-10, 2012, in New York City.
