Fifth Year on Working Mother Magazine's Top 100 List

PITTSBURGH - September 25, 2007 - 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 fifth time Bayer has appeared on the annual list.

"As better models of quality are established each year, being named to the "Working Mother 100 Best Companies" list for the fifth time is truly an honor," said Dr. Attila Molnar, President and CEO of Bayer Corporation. "At Bayer, we continually strive to develop and expand WorkLife programs that support working mothers. We are committed to creating a work environment that allows all of our employees to balance the needs of their careers with those of their families."

To apply for the "Working Mother 100 Best," Bayer provided Working Mother magazine with detailed information on seven areas of work/life including: workforce profile, childcare, company culture, flexibility, parental leave policies, total compensation and family-friendly programs. Bayer completed a 575-question application, which checked the availability, usage and tracking of programs to support working mothers and the accountability of managers to implement the programs.

Bayer was recognized for its family-friendly programs, compensation 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, flexible schedules and a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program as some of the work/life opportunities within Bayer that attract and retain 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 website, www.workingmother.com.
