Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Named a Working Mother 100 Best Company for 14th Consecutive Year


ATLANTA (Sept. 25, 2018) — Recognizing the importance of organizations who are leaders in their support of working families, Working Mother magazine announced Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta  as a 2018 Working Mother 100 Best Company. Children’s was named to the list for the 14th year  due to a variety of positive programs, such as child care access, female career advancement, and manager training and accountability. The magazine specifically mentions Children’s wellness offerings, including the TriPossible employee race training program, as well as opportunities for flexible scheduling.

Children’s is recognized alongside only three other organizations headquartered in Georgia on the list and appears as the only pediatric hospital in the country to earn this honor. Children’s is privileged to be named along with national industry leaders like American Express, Colgate-Palmolive and Marriott International.

“We are honored to be recognized as a best company for working mothers again this year by Working Mother magazine,” says Linda Matzigkeit, Chief Administrative Officer at Children’s. “At Children’s, we invest in programs and initiatives that truly support our employees and their families.”

The 100 Best Companies application includes more than 400 questions on leave policies, workforce representation, benefits, childcare, advancement programs, flexibility policies and more. It surveys the availability and usage of these programs, as well as the accountability of the many managers who oversee them.

Working Mother Editor-in-Chief Meredith Bodgas says, “This year’s 100 Best Companies continue to strive for excellence when it comes to providing a work environment that is not only woman-friendly, but parent-friendly.”

Children’s has also been ranked as one of the Best Workplaces for Women by Great Places to Work and FORTUNE magazine. The list is based on employee surveys and highlights companies where women have high representation in the total employee population and in management positions. In its review , FORTUNE magazine highlighted how employees support each other at Children’s and the organization’s focus on the employee as an individual.
