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!
