Working Mother Names Transamerica on "100 Best Companies" List in 2019
Transamerica announced today that the company was selected as an honoree on the “2019 Working Mother 100 Best Companies” list by Working Mother magazine. The list highlights companies that lead the way in providing working parents with programs and services that help them thrive both at work and home.
Every year, the publication ranks companies based on their ratings in areas such as recruitment and advancement for women, childcare, paid leave, flexible work, family support, benefits, and more. Companies are selected on the availability and use of family-friendly programs and services and how well the managers who oversee the programs and service fulfill their responsibilities.
“Transamerica takes pride in providing all of our employees with benefits that reflect our culture of inclusiveness, equality, and diversity,” said Julie Tschida Brown, Chief People Officer at Transamerica. “We are especially pleased to receive the Working Mother 100 Best Companies distinction. We understand the challenges parents face in the workplace and have made significant efforts to create a parent-supportive environment throughout the company.”
Transamerica offers employees health and wellness classes and recently introduced wellness coaches who provide personal or online guidance at no cost to employees. The wellness coaching also includes help finding a doctor and support for managing a chronic condition.
