Unilever named to Working Mother 100 Best Companies awarded recognition for Progressive Workplace Programs
Englewood Cliffs, NJ - Working Mother magazine today named Unilever as one of the 2015 Working Mother 100 Best Companies for its commitment to progressive workplace programs, including advancement of women, flexibility, child care and paid parental leave. The 100 Best Companies are featured in the October/November issue of Working Mother and on workingmother.com.
“Unilever is honored to be included on this prestigious list,” said Mike Clementi, Unilever North America Vice President of Human Resources. “Our resources, policies and programs are intended to meet the diverse needs of our employees to balance family and work priorities. From expectant mother parking to dependent back-up care and agile working—we are determined to create an inclusive environment.”
Jennifer Owens, editorial director of Working Mother Media, says, “Thirty years is an important milestone and we are happy to honor it. But we know, too, that the road ahead to truly supportive workplaces for all employees remains long. Today, more than 2 million people work at a Best Company but that’s a drop in the bucket when you consider that our nation is home to 24 million working mothers—70 percent of moms with kids under age 18 are employed.”
Subha Barry, vice president, general manager, Working Mother Media, says, “As we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies, we are keen to recognize leaders who have built initiatives that truly support all employees. They are the vanguard of successful companies, with policies that matter to American families.”
