RACINE, Wis., September 25, 2018 – SC Johnson today announces it has been named to Working Mother magazine’s list of 100 Best Companies for the 30th year. Reaching this milestone, the company becomes one of just six global companies and the only Wisconsin-based company to be included on the list 30 times or more. SC Johnson is recognized on this prestigious list by Working Mother magazine for creating programs and benefits that support working parents.
“As a dedicated, single parent myself, I understand the importance of creating a workplace where people can be successful at work and at home,” said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson. “SC Johnson is honored to be recognized by Working Mother as one of the best companies for working parents for the 30th time.”
According to the U.S. Department of Labor*, in 2017 more than 71 percent of all mothers with children under age 18 were working or looking for work, increasing the demand for workplaces that go the extra mile to support working moms. SC Johnson provides an array of opportunities and benefits that are competitive in each local marketplace. Among them include its Childcare Learning Center, flexible work schedules, generous maternity, paternity and adoption leave, and a recreational center.
“Each year, we look forward to celebrating the 100 Best Companies and shine a spotlight on the Top 10 Companies for the work they are doing on behalf of working parents and caregivers,” said Subha Barry, president of Working Mother Media. “The programs and policies for working parents created by all of the 100 Best set a standard of excellence, and we applaud them for continuing to innovate and address the needs of this important talent sector.”
Working Mother magazine will showcase the selected companies at this year’s WorkBeyond Summit Oct. 8-9 in New York City. The complete list of the 2018 Working Mother 100 Best Companies can be found here.

In 2017, the company received a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index.
