With progress in the areas of company culture and work life programs, Kellogg Co. announces that it was recognized by Working Mother magazine as one of its 100 Best Companies of 2013.
Companies are selected for the Working Mother 100 Best Companies honor based on an extensive application that ranks organizations in the areas of paid time off and leave, workforce profile, benefits, company culture, work life programs and more.
"We know that building a career while raising a family can be challenging," said John Bryant, president and CEO, Kellogg Co., in prepared statement. "We encourage workplace flexibility and support our working parents, believing you don't have to sacrifice one for the other."
Kellogg supports family programs that help employees in all areas of their lives – including offering paid maternity and paternity leave, lactation rooms, flexible work arrangements and reimbursement for dependent care while away on business that occurs before or after normal work hours.
"Our employees benefit from programs and arrangements that assist in balancing their busy personal and professional lives," said Mark King, global head, diversity and inclusion, Kellogg Co. "We are proud of the Working Mother honor and the progress we've made in this area."
