Top 100 Companies for Working Moms

Today a client asked me how feasible it is for a woman who is working and caring for young children to negotiate flexible work hours with a prospective employer. One of the best ways to successfully negotiate a flexible arrangement is to proactively seek interviews with companies that openly embrace work/life balance as part of their corporate culture. Conduct some "market research" that includes talking to friends who have flexible arrangements, seeking out special interest groups for women within industry professional organizations, and subscribing to business publications that frequently publish "Best Companies to Work For" lists such as Fortune, Crains, and Working Woman. In their September 2006 issue, Working Woman Magazine listed the Top 100 Companies for Working Moms. It's a great resource for women seeking opportunities with firms that are championing creative ways to retain their female talent.
