Moody’s Named to 2017 Working Mother “100 Best Companies” for Second Year Running


Moody’s Corp (MCO) announced today that it has been named for the second year in a row to “Working Mother 100 Best Companies” in recognition of its strong leadership in creating programs for its US workforce that contribute to the advancement of women, flexibility, childcare and paid parental leave.

“We believe that building an inclusive workplace for working families makes good business sense, and we are pleased that our ongoing commitment and the success of our programs has again been recognized by Working Mother,” said Raymond McDaniel, President and Chief Executive Officer of Moody’s.

The award recognizes Moody’s progressive policies, including paid parental leave for US employees and the launch of RE-Ignite, a career re-entry program that helps talented candidates return to the workforce after a hiatus. These new initiatives have supported Moody’s status as employer of choice and contributed to the company’s recognition by Working Mother.

Subha Barry, senior vice president and managing director of Working Mother Media, said, “As our 32nd year of recognizing the best companies begins, we are happy to see that the next generation, coupled with technology, have shown us how employees can be efficient, productive, effective and impactful no matter where they work. The 2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies’ policies and programs have built loyalty among their employees that cannot be underestimated.”

The 100 Best Companies are featured in the October/November issue of Working Mother and on workingmother.com. The complete list of the 2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies can be found here.
