AOL is a Working Mother 'Top 100' Company for 2013

What do you get when you combine parenting programs, fitness centers, and the AOL Get Fit program? A place on Working Mother's Top 100 Companies for 2013!

The "100 Best Companies" list – which AOL has been a part of for five years in a row – highlights the top companies in the U.S. offering family-friendly benefits.

But, don't just take our word for why AOL is a great place to work – here's what Working Mother had to say:

"Pregnancy regimens, school volunteering issues, college tuition worries...the Parents Group meetings at this Web services company sure cover a lot of ground-and with 300+ babies born to employees every year, they're a big hit. Videoconferences and webinars led by parenting coach Hazel Osborn further plumb complex subjects, from bullying and gifted children to picking the right summer camp and proper scheduling of afterschool activities. Moms are grateful for the company's ubiquitous lactation rooms, backup dependent care and expansive parenting programs and leaves (used by 15% of the population annually). In 2012, more than 26% of employees worked from home full-time."

As part of the application process, we requested nominations for a Working Mother of the Year. The response was fantastic, and we ultimately selected Kacinda Belk. Kacinda – who's described as "extremely detail-oriented, relentless and sharp" – is an outstanding mom and mentor alike, and her contribution and dedication to AOL is recognition-worthy. We're so proud to have her represent us as Working Mother of the Year 2013!

Thanks to everyone who participated in Monster Help Day 2013. We made a big impact in the local communities surrounding our offices around the globe. On May 16, we deployed nearly 3,000 AOLers who devoted more than 10,000 hours volunteering with 60+ nonprofit partners.

We're excited to share our video recap this year, which features photos and video taken by our very own AOLers! Watch the video to get an idea of the many projects we took part in on our day of service!

Irish Eyes are Smiling

AOLers across the world are gearing up for the holidays this season, from themed parties and decorations, to fundraisers and company events. However, we'd have to rank the AOL Ireland team towards the top of the list for most festive.

Why? Think big. The team has completely transformed the side of Dublin's Boland's Mill building into a gigantic 3D winter wonderland. This stunt is part of a brand awareness campaign for the Dublin team, which is currently recruiting 35 software engineers to join AOL in the new year.

Using state-of-the-art 3D mapping and high-powered projectors, the former flour mill will be lit up for 12 days with stunning holiday animations, providing a festive spectacle for residents and visitors of Grand Canal. In addition to the visual promotion, the campaign has a heavy social media element displaying the hashtag #merryaol on the projected screen to capture the reactions of those passersby who are inspired to Tweet.

Want to learn more? Check out the video from the launch evening below and watch additional videos from the stunt over the next 12 days on AOL Ireland's Facebook page.
