Carol Evans, president of Working Mother Media, says, "Now in its 28th year, the Working Mother 100 Best Companies are leaders in building initiatives that truly support all employees. They are the vanguard of successful companies, with modern policies for American families. That's why we are launching National Flex Day on October 15. 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 are thrilled to have been honored by Working Mother for more than 20 years.  Putting people first is core to our company's values," said David Rodriguez, executive vice president and chief human resources officer for Marriott International.  "Our associates, many of whom are working parents, are vital to our success and we strive to create a workplace that helps to maintain a comfortable blend between work and home while they continue to realize a world of opportunities in their careers."
