RACINE, Wis., September 26, 2017 – For the 29th year, SC Johnson has been named to Working Mother magazine’s list of 100 Best Companies. Today, the only Wisconsin-based company on the 2017 list announced that it is again being recognized for its programs and benefits that support working parents including paid family leave, schedule flexibility and advancement of women.
“SC Johnson was one of the first companies of our size to provide an on-site child care center. Thirty years ago when we were first recognized by Working Mother, companies weren’t offering these kinds of benefits,” said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson. “We have a legacy of being progressive in our support for working parents – and it is one thing of many we do to be a great place to work.”
According to the U.S. Department of Labor*, in 2016 more than 70 percent of all mothers were working or looking for work, increasing the demand for workplaces that go the extra mile to support working moms. SC Johnson continues to provide families with a variety of benefits to meet the needs of working parents, including a Childcare Learning Center, flexible work schedules, generous maternity, paternity and adoption leave, and a recreational center.
Subha Barry, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Working Mother Media, says, “As our 32nd year of recognizing the best companies begins, we are happy to see that the next generation, coupled with technology, have shown us how employees can be efficient, productive, effective and impactful no matter where they work. The 2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies’ policies and programs have built loyalty among their employees that cannot be underestimated.”
Working Mother magazine will showcase the selected companies at this year’s WorkBeyond Summit from Oct. 23-24 in New York City. The complete list of the 2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies can be found here.
