MARIETTA, GA -- The Working Mother 100 Best Companies initiative has selected WellStar Health System as one of the nation's top 10 organizations for 2010.

"WellStar is committed to world-class healthcare while being an exceptional workplace," said David Anderson, executive vice-president of human resources and organizational learning/chief compliance officer for WellStar Health System. "Through competitive salaries, outstanding benefits, innovative work/life programs and our concierge service, we are nationally recognized as an employer of choice. Given that 83% of our workforce is female, we are honored to be a Working Mother top 10 company."

The 100 Best Companies' family programs adeptly help employees in all areas of their lives. WellStar is a third-year recipient of this honor.

With more than 11,500 employees, WellStar Health System has numerous programs in place to assist employees in both their personal and professional lives, with benefits such as tuition reimbursement, continuing education, retirement planning, onsite child care, a fitness center and more. WellStar believes that a corporate culture that firmly supports employees both at work and home decreases turnover and increases loyalty to the organization. The benefit to the company is a higher level of patient care and satisfaction.

The Working Mother 100 Best Companies are working hard to expand their benefits. All of them offer telecommuting (compared to 44% of American companies), 95% offer formal mentoring (vs. 17%), and all of them offer health insurance for part-time employees (vs. 37%). The top 100 companies also all offer paid maternity leave, lactation rooms, flextime, mental health consultations and elder-care resources; 98% offer health screening and wellness programs.

Profiles of the 100 Best Companies, as well as national comparisons, can be found in the October issue of Working Mother and at the magazine's website.
