100 Best Companies for Working Mothers :: 2008 List

Hallmark is officially one of the best companies in America for working mothers. That’s the conclusion of Working Mother magazine, which named Hallmark to its 100 Best Companies list for 2008.

The list recognizes companies nationwide that are “leading by example, giving women the programs, choices and support they need to shine at work and at home.”

Now, I'm not a mom yet, but I hope to be some day (a long, long time from now...). I also have a lot of friends here at Hallmark who are moms. For all the mothers here, and for potential future mothers, it is empowering to work for a company that supports family and work/life balance.

Here are some quick facts about Hallmark's benefits for working mothers, and you can click here to read more about Hallmark and the other 99 2008 winners.

Is it really true that out of 31K+ employees, almost 26K are women?

Please, ladies, there's plenty of me to go around! (Sorry, always wanted to say that...)
