Fourth Year on Working Mother Magazine's Top 100 List

PITTSBURGH- Bayer Corporation has been recognized by Working Mother magazine as one of 100 best companies across the nation for working mothers. This selection marks the fourth time Bayer has appeared on the annual list.

"To once again be named to the "Working Mother 100 Best" list is an honor, especially since the standards of excellence rise each year," said Dr. Attila Molnar, President and CEO of Bayer Corporation. "At Bayer, we are committed to helping our employees achieve the necessary and vital balance between their professional and personal lives."

To apply for the "Working Mother 100 Best," Bayer provided Working Mother magazine with detailed information on nine areas of work/life including: child-care, culture, flexibility, parental leave, women's advancement, total compensation, work/life culture and family-friendly programs. Bayer completed a 550-question application, which checked the availability, tracking and usage of programs to support working mothers, the accountability of managers to implement programs and the successful advancement of women into top paying jobs, board positions and management ranks. Bayer was also required to submit documentation of programs and policies and results of employee surveys.

Bayer was honored for its family-friendly programs, best practices and company culture and ranked high or above average in more than half of the categories surveyed.

Dr. Molnar identified job sharing, child-care, telecommuting and flexible schedules and a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program as some of the work/life opportunities within Bayer that attract employees to the company.

The Working Mother recognition is one of several from national or local organizations that Bayer has received, including the prestigious Catalyst Award for leadership in establishing innovative programs to prepare women and people of color with the critical skills necessary to advance to senior positions.

The complete list of the "100 Best Companies for Working Mothers" appears in the October issue of Working Mother -- available on newsstands September 25, and currently available on the magazine's Web site, http://www.workingmother.com.
