NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Moody’s Corporation (NYSE:MCO) announced today that it has been named to Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies list for the fifth consecutive year, and the Best Companies for Dads list for the third consecutive year. These lists recognize US organizations taking action to advance parents in the workplace through parental leave policies, benefits, childcare, advancement programs, flexibility and more.
“Moody’s is strongly committed to policies and programs that support the development and advancement of parents in the workplace,” said DK Bartley, Chief Diversity Officer at Moody’s. “We are honored by our continued recognition in Working Mother’s Best Companies and proud to have created an inclusive culture where parents have the tools, resources and flexibility to lead and thrive.”
The award recognizes Moody’s focus on diversity and inclusion strategies that develop parents, especially women, for leadership roles and fosters a workplace where all individuals can be their authentic selves. Moody’s scored particularly high for its workplace flexibility, gender-neutral parental leave, and phase-back programs.
In addition to its workplace policies, Moody’s has activated or enhanced several key programs for parents, especially women and mothers. This year, Moody’s launched the TIDE program, a diversity initiative aimed at elevating women and people of color with high potential to leadership positions, and strengthened its Senior Women Leadership Forum, a twelve-month development program for senior level women. The company also announced plans to expand its 2021 RE-IGNITE Program from the US to the EMEA region. RE-IGNITE is Moody’s paid twelve-week return to work opportunity designed for individuals, especially mothers, wishing to restart their careers after a minimum two-year hiatus. This year also marks the 11th anniversary of Moody’s Employee Resources Groups (ERGs), including the Women’s ERG and its Working Parents Circle support network.
