Dell Ranked Among the Nation’s Best Companies for Working Moms and Family Friendly Benefits
Further supports Dell’s commitment to diversity and equal employment opportunity.
ROUND ROCK, Texas. – Dell has been named among the 2009 Working Mother 100 Best Companies list for the second consecutive year for its on-going commitment to family-friendly initiatives and benefits for its employees. Dell and the other winning companies lead the way in pioneering programs that support families, with 100 percent offering flextime and telecommunicating, and 98 percent offering job-sharing and wellness programs. In addition, financial programs available to the 100 best companies’ employees are on the rise, a much-needed boost for families in today’s economy.
Dell improved on its 2008 scores in six of the eight categories rated by the magazine annually. Dell received high marks for its work-life effectiveness programs, wellness and family-friendly initiatives and resources, and scored well in a new category that measures “women’s issues and advancement.”
Dell’s ranking among the 100 Best underscores its commitment to diversity and inclusion as a business imperative. Dell recognizes that to be a successful company it must leverage the differences, similarities and unique experiences of its team members to create a great place to work.
Profiles of the 100 Best Companies, as well as national comparisons, are in the October issue of Working Mother and at workingmother.com.
“At Dell, we consider diversity and inclusion integral parts of our business strategy. By continuing to drive these initiatives throughout the company, we’re able to harness each individual’s full potential, drive innovation and become a better place to work. We continue to innovate in how we create family friendly benefits and our employees are part of the think tank that bring ideas forward,” said Gil Casellas, vice president of corporate responsibility for Dell.
“The Working Mother 100 Best Companies stand head and shoulders above the rest. For example, we saw the number of companies nationwide offering flexible work arrangements diminish 5 percentage points in the last year, while the 100 Best Companies stayed steady at 100 percent. The 100 Best provide leadership where and when we need it most, furnishing a framework of support for working families during good times and bad. If all companies adopted these best practices, more families could weather the economic storm,” said Carol Evans, CEO of Working Mother Media.
