Pillsbury is included in Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies 2013 list

For the eighth year in a row, Pillsbury has been named to Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies list.

The list celebrates employers whose benefits — from flexible schedules and childcare to innovative leave policies for new parents — are helping redefine workplace standards across the nation.

To determine who is selected, companies complete an extensive questionnaire on workforce representation, childcare, flexibility programmes, leave policies and more. It surveys the availability, usage and tracking of programmes, as well as the accountability of managers who oversee them.

For this year’s 100 Best Companies list, particular weight was given to flexible work arrangements, women’s advancement programmes and paid maternity leave.
