Diageo North America Named To Working Mother's 100 Best Companies List

NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Highlighting the top companies that are paving the way for new moms and families everywhere, today Working Mother magazine announced Diageo North America as one of the 100 Best Companies in 2012. With top ratings in workforce profile, compensation, child care, flexibility, time off and leaves, family-friendly programs and company culture, Diageo is recognized as a proud leader and committed advocate of family-friendly workplaces.

"This year's 100 Best Companies are leading the way for the rest of the nation," said Carol Evans, President, Working Mother Media. "They have created not only essential benefits, like flexible work options and telecommuting, but have also shown their commitment in new ways like elder care referral and legal assistance to help busy parents manage their personal lives as well as their careers."

"We are honored to receive this recognition for the fourth year in a row," said Larry Schwartz, President, Diageo North America. "Creating an environment that fosters success means not just recognizing, but celebrating the different life experiences and culture that strengthen our work force. It is a privilege to be recognized as a company that helps foster a family-friendly culture."

Diageo's flexible working arrangements, which include job share, flextime, compressed hours and opportunities to work from home, are all available to ensure that employees with diverse needs can balance their personal and work responsibilities. Employees are provided with programs such as a concierge service that provides personal assistance in support of achieving a work-life balance, as well as mentoring initiatives designed to help employees to succeed in their careers. Diageo also offers back-up daycare, college placement assistance with many office locations offering on-site services to help employees ease the tension between work responsibilities and a balanced life, including health clubs, laundry and dry cleaning services and banking services. Diageo encourages its employees to work closer to their homes and families, and should any existing policies not meet the personal needs of Diageo's employee-base -- particularly parents and mothers who face unique challenges -- the company strives to support new ideas from its staff.
