HALL OF FAME
Abbott Park, IL
Chairman & CEO Miles D. White Executive VP, HR Stephen Fussell
Many mothers launch major careers at this healthcare company, where leaders set goals around hiring and advancing women; in 2016, 47% of all employees in management roles were female. Senior executives are held accountable for helping women succeed, and the execs’ bonuses are impacted by how well the women do. Moms rave about the support they’ve received when faced with personal challenges (a child’s surgery, a cancer diagnosis, the loss of a spouse), adding that managers have helped them reduce their hours, work remotely and compress their schedules. The on-site childcare center at HQ helps too, serving 471 kids and charging sliding-scale fees.
