Working Mother Magazine recently announced that DuPont is one of the top 100 best places to work for working mothers. DuPont was named among this select group for its mother friendly programs and practices.
The list of companies selected for the "2009 Working Mother 100 Best Companies" was based on submission of an extensive application completed by each company. The application includes questions about work force, compensation, child-care, flexibility programs and more.
"DuPont is proud to be placed on this list for the 21st time," said Maritza J. Poza-Grise , vice president - DuPont Human Resources. "We continue to place high value on our work-life programs. As a company, we consistently see the benefits of providing a supportive work environment for our employees, especially now during these tough economic times."
DuPont was specifically recognized for its support of flextime, childcare facilities and discounts along with its on-going support for working mothers in general.
Flextime: At DuPont, nearly 60 percent of employees use flextime at some point in their career. To help employees determine what schedule will work best for them, the company website provides calculators, checklists and other tools.
Childcare: The Wilmington headquarters features an on-site facility that can accommodate up to a total of 160 infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Employees at other locations receive 10 percent discounts at day-care centers and sponsored backup and sick-child care in their homes or at accredited facilities.
