Congratulations to 27 of our corporate partners that were honored by Working Mother Media for being among the 100 best companies for working mothers in 2008.

Achieving this recognition follows a rigorous application and review process — and a continuing commitment to family friendly policies. Here’s some background:

Companies were selected for the 2008 Working Mother 100 Best Companies based on an extensive application with more than 500 questions. The application included detailed questions about work force, compensation, child care, flexibility programs, leave policies and more. It also checked the usage, availability and tracking of programs, as well as the accountability of managers who oversee them. Seven areas were measured and scored: work force profile, compensation, child care, flexibility, time off and leaves, family-friendly programs, and company culture. For this year’s 100 Best, particular weight was given to family-friendly policies, flexibility, leave policies and benefits for part-time employees.
