McGladrey Named to 2014 Working Mother 100 Best Companies List



McGladrey LLP, the nation's leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, was recently named by Working Mother magazine as one of the publication's 2014 Working Mother 100 Best Companies.

Working Mother recognized companies for outstanding leadership in establishing policies, programs and corporate culture that supports working moms, including child care, flexible work arrangements, paid parental leave and advancement of women. Companies are also measured on access to and use of family-friendly programs.

"We are honored to receive this recognition for the eighth year," said Richard Caturano, McGladrey's national leader of culture, diversity and inclusion. "At McGladrey, we understand not only our clients' needs, but also the needs of our employees – those who work so hard to help our clients meet and exceed their goals. Work-life balance and employee engagement have always been integral components of McGladrey's commitment to creating an inclusive work environment. In our most recent McGladrey People Survey, we saw a 16-percent increase from the previous year in our employees' satisfaction. These statistics, and recognitions such as this one from Working Mother, recognize the commitment we have to our employees, and the fact that we continuously look for ways to enhance the value of the flexibility and benefits we provide."

"The Working Mother 100 Best Companies are the leaders in the advancement of women by supporting the need to integrate family and work successfully," said Carol Evans, president at Working Mother Media. "We are thrilled to honor the U.S. companies that put words into action and build family-friendly cultures on the foundation of thoughtful policies and effective programs. Women make up 50 percent of our workforce. We need to make sure they have the support to be outstanding moms as well as great employees."

"In its 29th year, the Working Mother 100 Best Companies are a powerful reminder of how great companies can and do create supportive work places for their employees," said Jennifer Owens, editorial director of Working Mother Media. "All employers would do well to follow their lead if they want to attract and retain top talent."

In honor of the 100 Best Companies, Working Mother has declared Tues., Oct. 21 as National Flex Day to increase awareness for the importance of workplace flexibility. All companies are invited to participate by encouraging employees to use flex policies on this day.
