Leo Burnett Named to Working Mother’s ‘100 Best Companies’ List
The agency is recognized for strong, progressive programming for families and women
Working Mother magazine has named Leo Burnett one of its 2017 “100 Best Companies.” The annual list recognizes companies that are considered leaders in progressive programming and the advancement of women, child care and paid parental leave. 2017 marks the 12th time that Leo Burnett has received this honor.
“We’re very proud to be included once more in Working Mother magazine’s list of ‘100 Best Companies,’” said Leo Burnett North America Chief Talent Officer Renetta McCann. “It demonstrates our commitment to supporting and empowering the passions and goals of our people, and to continually finding ways to improve ourselves as an employer at present and for the future.”
The recognition is a testament to the agency’s wide range of programs and initiatives that ensure work flexibility, diversity, educational advancement, gender equality and more. These programs are led by Leo Burnett’s People & Culture department, with support from an array of employee resource groups that serve the diverse range of employee needs at the agency.
Leo Burnett also provides its employees with tools and programs that support and empower them – both inside and outside the office. The agency offers employees flexible-work options as well as programs that specifically cater to parents and families, such as the Adoption Assistance Program and Rethink, a robust e-learning-style support system for parents of children with special needs.
The agency also empowers the growth of its employees through continuing-education programs that go beyond traditional reimbursement initiatives. For example, Leo Leaps is a unique opportunity for employees to design and complete their own personal-learning projects. Treehouse is also an opportunity for employees to develop research to present to agency leadership – and potentially see that research implemented.
