For the fifth straight year, L'Oréal USA has been named to Working Mother’s list of 100 Best Companies. L’Oréal USA earned its place on the 2019 100 Best Companies list, announced today, for its commitment to a company culture that empowers women across all phases of their careers and focuses on inclusive benefits for families, including healthcare coverage with fertility support, gender-neutral parental leave, gradual phase-back after leave, and access to childcare and flexible work arrangements.

“With women representing nearly 70% of L’Oréal’s U.S. workforce, it is deeply important that our company culture ensures that women not only thrive at the office but advance into leadership positions. Supporting working parents is an important piece of that,” said Angela Guy, Senior Vice President, Diversity & Inclusion, L’Oréal USA. “We are honored to be recognized by Working Mother for this commitment for the fifth consecutive year.”

“Our 100 Best Companies are the standard of excellence and continue to pave the way with the work they are doing on behalf of working parents and caregivers in the U.S.,” says Subha Barry, president of Working Mother Media. “We celebrate their efforts and applaud them for addressing the needs of this important and ever-growing sector of talent.”

“Parents are speaking out more than ever before about what they need in order to succeed at work and at home, and employers are paying attention,” says Meredith Bodgas, editor-in-chief of Working Mother. “By implementing family-friendly policies such as flexible schedules, paid parental leave, post-leave phase-back periods and mentoring programs, our 100 Best Companies are taking the needs of their employees into consideration in order to create a supportive, inclusive and productive environment.”

The 2019 Working Mother 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. All applicants receive feedback showing how they compare with other applicants; however, the names of applicants that do not make the list are kept confidential. Company profiles and data come from submitted applications and reflect 2018 data.
