The Best of the Best
All the Working Mother 100 Best Companies have exceptional benefits and support systems. The top 10, though, stand out for continually evolving their workplaces to meet parents’ needs and improving employees’ lives.
Although Working Mother does not disclose ranks of the 100 Best Companies except to say which ones are in the top 10, this year we have decided to name the No. 1 company. The creation of an employee value proposition to attract and retain working parents has become increasingly competitive, even among organizations that excel at this. Being No. 1 is a remarkable achievement. Unilever, which is No. 1, has been on this list for only six years. Women are 44 percent of the workforce but 52 percent of managers at the consumer-products company. And Unilever makes mentoring available for all its employees and has an employee-resource group specifically for parents.
Here are other key parental benefits it and the rest of the top 10 offer, plus the stories of employees who are thriving there.
