Submitted by: Abbott

Categories: Ratings & Awards, Human Resources & Diversity

Posted: Sep 18, 2012 – 12:26 PM EST

 

ABBOTT PARK, Ill., Sep. 18 /CSRwire/ - Abbott today was once again named one of the 100 Best Companies by Working Mother magazine. This is the twelfth consecutive year that Abbott has been included on the prestigious list, which recognizes companies for providing a family-friendly workplace. Additional information is in the October/November issue of Working Mother magazine and online at www.workingmother.com.     

"We are pleased to be recognized once again for workplace leadership by
Working Mother magazine," said Stephen Fussell, senior vice president,
Human Resources, Abbott. "At Abbott, we are committed to offering innovative benefits and programs that support a diverse and inclusive workplace. This empowers our employees to succeed, and also further strengthens and sustains our growing global business."

In addition to recognition from Working Mother magazine, Abbott also was recently named one of the 2012 Best Companies for Diversity Practices by Hispanic Business magazine, and one of the 2012 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. This is the sixth consecutive year that Abbott has been included on both lists.

Abbott provides a comprehensive offering of health care, wellness, work/life and other family-friendly benefits, as well as flexible work options such as job sharing, compressed work-weeks, telecommuting and flextime to help employees find success at work and home. Abbott also offers opportunities for employees to succeed, lead and grow in their careers through training, mentoring, tuition reimbursement, networking groups and development programs that provide support and advancement opportunities.

Abbott Widely Recognized as a Great Place to Work

In addition to being honored for workplace leadership by Working Mother, Hispanic Business and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Abbott has been named to DiversityInc magazine's list of the top companies for diversity for nine years. The National Association for Female Executives again named Abbott among the Top 50 Companies for Executive Women in 2012, and Abbott also has been recognized as a top employer for scientists by Science and The Scientist magazines for many years. In addition, Abbott has been honored for workplace leadership in more than 25 countries around the world.

About Working Mother's 100 Best Companies List

Abbott was selected for the 2012 Working Mother 100 Best Companies based on an extensive application with more than 600 questions on workforce, compensation, child care, flexibility programs, leave policies and more. It also surveys the usage, availability and tracking of programs, as well as the accountability of managers who oversee them. Eight areas were measured and scored: workforce profile, benefits, women's issues and advancement, child care, flexible work, paid time off and leaves, company culture, and work/life programs.
