We've come a long way

Working Mother Magazine released its list today of the Top 100 Best Companies. I learned this before my magazine even arrived in the mail. The press releases started filling my inbox, companies letting the media know they made the list because they have the perks that make them alluring to working moms. We've come a long way, baby!

Who would have imagined that landing on this list would be something companies would covet? With 72 percent of mothers in the workforce, smart employers now understand the significance of bragging rights. The winner's circle this year includes companies large and small that specialize in everything from health care to financial services. More than half of the companies on the list increased spending for work/life programs in the past year. To read the full list, click here.

When you scratch the surface of the bright, glossy, multi-million dollar October issue brochure (almost all of the companies on the list are advertisers with the magazine), you find that many of the "benefits" are window dressing. At best, some can be called "perks" because they're not consistently available to every employee or they're available at the personal whims of managers.
