Discover Ranks As Top 25 Company For Work-Life Balance

Discover ranks 16 th on Glassdoor’s list of the “Top 25 Companies for Work-Life Balance,” which recognizes the credit given to the company by past and present employees for fostering professional development, creating an engaging work environment and promoting positive core values.

“Discover’s top 25 ranking recognizes our investment in improving the lives of our employees both inside and outside of the workplace,” said Jill Zimmerman, vice president of talent acquisition, development and diversity at Discover. “This ranking is a further testament to Discover’s great work environment and committed employees.”

The 2012 ranking, comprised of ratings on a five-point scale, reflects employees’ positive feedback surrounding Discover’s strong wellness programs, such as an on-site fitness center at the Riverwoods, Ill., location, flexible schedules, a generous vacation day policy and other benefits, and new learning opportunities.

“In today’s world of smartphones and laptops, striving for work-life balance can feel virtually impossible given the connection to our jobs around the clock,” said Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor career and workplace expert. “Companies that make sincere efforts to recognize employees’ lives outside of the office will often see the payoff when it comes to recruiting and retaining top talent.”, a free online social jobs and career community, determines the rankings entirely through employee feedback on working for the company over the past year.

Discover also was recognized recently in the top 50 on Computerworld’s 2012 “Top 100 Best Places to Work in IT” list and as a “Training Top 125 Organization” by Training Magazine in 2013.
