Health News: The Best Companies for Working Mothers

Over 70% of women with children are in the labor force. In addition, women are returning to the workforce sooner after having a child and the labor force participation for mothers with children younger than a year old is over 50%. According to research done by Womenonics, 74% or the women they surveyed say they don't have enough time for their children.


So what do working women want? Research from Womenomics and Career Directors International suggests:
  • Half the women in the workforce want fewer hours
  • Half would change their work schedules
  • More than half would trade money for a day off
  • Three-quarters want flexible work options

According to Working Mother's 100 Best Companies list, there are numerous great companies out there offering exceptional benefits for moms and their families including:
1. Bank of America which offers its 200,000 employees $5,000 in college scholarships for their children and $8,000 in adoption assistance.
2. Boston Consulting Group which surveys female staffers three times a year on job satisfaction and work/life balance.
3. FINRA which has a network of 4,000 facilities and 560 in-home care agencies to arrange emergency child care services for less than $5 per hour.
4. Goldman Sachs which makes it easy for stay-at-home moms to re-enter the workforce and even offers a Returnship program to get returning moms back up to speed in their skills.
5. AOL which offers women a Women's Network Mentor program to provide coaching and job shadowing opportunities and a Breakthrough Leadership program to help female leaders learn strategies for deflecting gender dynamics that could compromise their success.
