PROCESS AND DEADLINES All interested companies are invited to register for the 2011 Working Mother Best Companies for Hourly Workers survey via the link below. We recommend that your company registers as soon as possible (even if you are not sure that you will be able to submit a completed application). Having a registration on file for this survey ensures that you will be promptly informed of all pertinent information, updates, and invites to informational calls that take place before the application goes live. Each company self-selects itself for participation each year, so it is each company’s individual responsibility to ensure they are registered for this survey.
NOTE: Due to the nature and depth of the data we are collecting in this survey, this application is typically registered for and completed by a representative from your company’s HR, Diversity, Work/Life, Corporate Communications, or PR department.

The application will go live June 15, 2012. Registered applicants will receive a link to the application via email. Please be sure that only one contact per company registers for this survey. The registered contact will be the single point of contact for all survey-related correspondence.

Completed applications are due September 14, 2012. In early December, all applicant companies, including those that do not make the list, will receive a confidential report showing how it compares against other participating companies. The names of companies that do not make the list are never revealed. In addition, we offer detailed benchmarking to help applicant companies better understand their company’s performance.

The list of 2013 Working Mother Best Companies for Hourly Workers will be announced in the April/May issue of Working Mother Magazine and on workingmother.com.

Winning companies will also be celebrated at the Best Companies for Hourly Workers Luncheon in May 2013.
