Covington Named to ‘Working Mother 100’ for Fifth Year

September 14, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC, September 14, 2010 — For the fifth consecutive year, Covington & Burling LLP has been named to Working Mother magazine’s list of the “100 Best Companies.”

This is the silver anniversary of the Working Mother “100 Best Companies” list which recognizes the nation’s top companies for family friendly benefits. Companies were selected based on an extensive application with more than 600 questions on workforce, compensation, child care, flexibility programs, leave policies and more. It also surveyed the usage, availability and tracking of programs, as well as the accountability of managers who oversee them. Seven areas were measured and scored: workforce profile, benefits, women’s issues and advancement, child care, flexible work, parental leave and company culture. For this year’s 100 Best, particular weight was given to benefits, flexibility and parental leave.

“We are delighted to once again be on Working Mother’s ‘100 Best Companies’ list,” said Timothy Hester, chair of the Covington’s management committee. “We endeavor to meet the needs of our lawyers and staff through our benefits program and practical work/life initiatives. Although we have achieved considerable success in these areas, we will continue to make assessments to ensure that we are providing all of our employees with a workplace culture that best meets their needs.”

Carol Evans, president of Working Mother Media commented: “Twenty-five years ago, we made a bold decision to launch our Best Companies initiative and challenge businesses to address the unique needs of working mothers. We are pleased to count Covington as one of our ‘100 Best Companies’ for 2010, and applaud their family-friendly programs, which include a near-site daycare and preschool, alternative work schedules, and the Work-Life Balance Group."
