Prudential named as a Top 10 Working Mother 100 Best Company
NEWARK, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU) has been named a Top 10 Working
Mother 100 Best Company in recognition of the firm's ongoing efforts at
supporting, attracting and retaining busy parents.
"We are thrilled to be a top 10 company for working mothers," says
Maureen Corcoran, vice president of Life, Health and Inclusion.
"Prudential's commitment to our employees and their families has stood
the test of time and being acknowledged by Working Mother magazine is a
wonderful testament to that."
Among the programs cited for excellence were Prudential's child care and
adult care benefits, flexible work arrangements, and development
opportunities. Prudential was also lauded for its benefits for new
mothers. Coming back to work after having a baby can be tough --
something Prudential recognizes by allowing new moms and dads to take
generous parental leave -- up to 26 job-guaranteed weeks off with two
weeks fully paid.
Employees who adopt can receive up to $10,000 to cover related expenses
on an unlimited number of eligible adoptions. The company also has
lactation benefits, infant transition services, and eight on-sie
wellness centers that can support new moms and their families.
Carol Evans, president of Working Mother Media, says, "Now in its 28th
year, the Working Mother 100 Best Companies are leaders in building
initiatives that truly support all employees. They are the vanguard of
successful companies, with modern policies for American families."
The 2013 Working Mother 100 Best Companies application included more
than 550 questions on workforce representation, child care, flexibility
programs, leave policies and more. It surveyed the availability, usage
and tracking of programs, as well as the accountability of managers who
oversee them. This year, particular weight was given to flexible work
arrangements, women's advancement programs and paid maternity leave. The
100 Best Companies are profiled in the October/November issue of Working
Mother and on the Best Companies channel on workingmother.com.
Companies on the 2013 list will be recognized at the Working Mother 100
Best Companies Gala Awards Dinner in October.
Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU), a financial services leader, has
operations in the United States, Asia, Europe, and Latin America.
Prudential's diverse and talented employees are committed to helping
individual and institutional customers grow and protect their wealth
through a variety of products and services, including life insurance,
annuities, retirement-related services, mutual funds and investment
management. In the U.S., Prudential's iconic Rock symbol has stood for
