Covington Again Named to “Working Mother 100”


WASHINGTON, DC, September 25, 2007 — For the second consecutive year, Working Mother magazine has named Covington & Burling LLP to its “100 Best Companies” list. The list identifies the top one hundred companies in the United States based on a survey of all areas of work life, including company culture, family-friendly policies, and compensation. Most of the entities on the list are Fortune 500 companies; Covington is one of four law firms listed.

“Every year our winning companies raise the bar for what it means to be an employer of choice for working families,” said Carol Evans, CEO and President, Working Mother Media. “Covington not only offers essential benefits like flextime and telecommuting—they go above and beyond with a range of best practices and policies to ease the difficulties for working parents and their families. Their supportive culture makes a huge difference to employees who want to be great moms and great workers.”

Added Suzanne Riss, the editor in chief of Working Mother magazine, “As a working mother myself, I understand how absolutely essential it is for companies to find ways to nurture the personal and professional lives of employees. I commend Covington for conceiving and effectively implementing programs and benefits that offer an inspiring paradigm for the rest of corporate America: it is possible to be both family-friendly and financially successful.”

“We are pleased to be recognized again this year as a Working Mother 100 Best Company,” said Stuart Stock, chair of Covington’s management committee. “We strive to provide our lawyers and staff with work/life programs that will enhance their quality of life, and we are committed to continuing to build on the success we have already had in this critical area.”
