Also this year, in honor of the 100 Best Companies, Working Mother has declared October 15 as the first annual National Flex Day to encourage support for workplace flexibility.
"At McGladrey, we understand the needs of both our clients and our employees," said Richard Caturano, McGladrey's national leader of culture, diversity and inclusion. "Our goal is to provide employees with the flexibility they need to provide the most effective and efficient service possible to our clients, while also meeting their professional and personal needs. Just one example of that is our recent distribution of iPads to all employees – to make working remotely easier than ever before."

They are the vanguard of successful companies, with modern policies for American families," said Carol Evans, president of Working Mother Media.

It's time for employees and their companies to 'step out from the shadows' and embrace workplace flexibility as a core business strategy that will enable them to compete and succeed in an increasingly competitive global economy."
"We have made workplace flexibility our platform to heighten the message that as many as 30 million Americans work from home at least one day a week," said Jennifer Owens, editorial director of Working Mother Media. "Not only do all of Working Mother 100 Best Companies offer flex to their employees, they understand what a positive influence it has had on productivity, morale and motivation."
