Working Mother has revealed its annual list of the 2018 “100 Best Companies", celebrating firms that lead in the areas of female career advancement, paid parental leave, childcare assistance, benefits and flextime. Oliver Wyman was among the 100 companies that earned a spot on this year’s list.
Based on the comparison of data submitted by companies from the 100 Best Companies list and data from U.S. companies collected by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) for its 2018 Employee Benefits Report, there is a wide gap between the policies offered: 100 percent of the 100 Best Companies offer paid maternity leave versus 35 percent of companies nationwide; 99 percent of the 100 Best Companies offer paid paternity leave versus 29 percent of companies nationwide.
“This year’s 100 Best Companies continue to strive for excellence when it comes to providing a work environment that is not only woman-friendly, but parent-friendly,” says Meredith Bodgas, editor-in-chief of Working Mother. “By offering flexible schedules, paid parental leave, post-leave phase-back periods, adoption and surrogacy financial assistance, and mentoring programs, these companies address working parents' and caregivers’ needs head-on and help them succeed at work and home.”
