By Rob Starr, Content Manager, Big4.com
Last year, Ernst & Young LLP was inducted into Working Mother magazine’s Hall of Fame, demonstrating the firm’s continued commitment to women’s advancement and showcasing its programs and policies that benefit working parents. This year, the firm has ranked in the top 10 on Working Mother’s 2012 Working Mother 100 Best Companies list, marking the firm’s seventh year in the top 10 and its 16th appearance on the list.
The Working Mother 100 Best Companies survey honors organizations for their flexible culture as well as their wide array of progressive workplace programs supporting child care, flexibility, women’s advancement and paid family leave. This is the 27th year Working Mother has recognized organizations for their initiatives.
Health and wellness benefits Ernst & Young LLP provides for new parents include parenting and sibling classes, breast pumps for employees and the spouses of employees, and transport of breast milk for women traveling on business. In addition, the firm provides support groups for parents of children with special needs, teenagers, cancer survivors, adult dependents and military families.
All of the winners will be recognized at the Working Mother 100 Best Companies Gala Awards Dinner on Oct. 10, 2012, at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. The event is part of the Work Life Congress annual conference held from Oct. 8-10, 2012. The 100 Best Companies are also recognized in the October/November issue of the magazine and on workingmother.com.
Karyn Twaronite, Americas Inclusiveness Officer, Ernst & Young comments:
“We are so proud to again be listed among the top 10 companies for working mothers,” she said. “This recognition not only highlights our ongoing commitment to our working parents and women, it reinforces our dedication to fostering a flexible and inclusive work environment that ultimately benefits all of our people. At Ernst & Young, we want to do everything we can to help our people succeed personally and professionally.”
