Sep. 05 /CSRwire/ - The New York Times
Company announced today that it has been honored as one of the nation's "100 Best Companies for Working Mothers" by Working Mother magazine.
"This honor reflects a central belief of The Times; it is the people who work here who make the Company as successful as it is," said Jeanne Pinder, work-life manager of The New York Times newspaper and part of a companywide team, which addresses work-life issues. "It is their interests that are at the heart of our efforts. We are dedicated to providing work-life balance for all our employees - working mothers and working fathers, those with elder-care issues, and
those whose non-work lives are taken up with volunteering, further education and other pursuits. When we give people the opportunity to
find balance in their lives, they bring us their greatest passion and energy."
Every year Working Mother honors those companies that best address their employees' work-life needs. Selections are made based on five
criteria: child care leave for new parents, flexible work arrangements, work-life benefits such as elder care and adoption assistance, and opportunities for women to advance. The New York Times Company will be recognized at Working Mother's gala awards dinner on Sept. 27 in New York.
Some work-life benefits at The New York Times Company are companywide while others vary by business unit. Examples of work-life balance programs include:

-- Adoption Assistance Plan: Reimburses employees for adoption costs up to $5,000 ($6,000 in the case of a special-needs child). -- Flexible work options: Includes flextime, shortened or compressed work weeks, job-sharing and telecommuting. Many areas of the Company have flexible work arrangements, including The New York Times newspaper, where 36 percent of the employees who responded to a recent survey said they have some form of a flexible or non-traditional schedule. -- Emergency back-up child care: Provides help to families in emergency situations. Many areas of the Company offer back-up child care. -- Coverage for domestic partners: Covers eligible domestic partners and their children as dependents under the same medical, dental and vision/hearing care options that employees choose.
Other programs and benefits offered by the different business units include elder care resource and referral, on-site fitness
centers, as many as 10 days per year of paid time off to care for ill family members, lactation rooms, concierge services and tuition
