Prudential Named As A Top 10 Working Mother 100 Best Company

Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU) has been named a Top 10 Working Mother 100 Best Company in recognition of the firm’s ongoing efforts at supporting, attracting and retaining busy parents.

"We are thrilled to be a top 10 company for working mothers," says Maureen Corcoran, vice president of Life, Health and Inclusion. “Prudential’s commitment to our employees and their families has stood the test of time and being acknowledged by Working Mother magazine is a wonderful testament to that."

Among the programs cited for excellence were Prudential’s child care and adult care benefits, flexible work arrangements, and development opportunities. Prudential was also lauded for its benefits for new mothers. Coming back to work after having a baby can be tough -- something Prudential recognizes by allowing new moms and dads to take generous parental leave -- up to 26 job-guaranteed weeks off with two weeks fully paid.

Employees who adopt can receive up to $10,000 to cover related expenses on an unlimited number of eligible adoptions. The company also has lactation benefits, infant transition services, and eight on-site wellness centers that can support new moms and their families.

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."

The 2013 Working Mother 100 Best Companies application included more than 550 questions on workforce representation, child care, flexibility programs, leave policies and more. It surveyed the availability, usage and tracking of programs, as well as the accountability of managers who oversee them. This year, particular weight was given to flexible work arrangements, women's advancement programs and paid maternity leave. The 100 Best Companies are profiled in the October/November issue of Working Mother and on the Best Companies channel on Companies on the 2013 list will be recognized at the Working Mother 100 Best Companies Gala Awards Dinner in October.

Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU), a financial services leader, has operations in the United States, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Prudential’s diverse and talented employees are committed to helping individual and institutional customers grow and protect their wealth through a variety of products and services, including life insurance, annuities, retirement-related services, mutual funds and investment management. In the U.S., Prudential’s iconic Rock symbol has stood for strength, stability, expertise and innovation for more than a century. For more information, please visit
