NEW YORK, September 25th, 2018 /3BL Media/ -Moody’s Corporation (NYSE:MCO) announced today that, for the first time, it has been recognized as a top ten employer by Working Mother, ranking eighth in the list of top 100 companies for 2018. This is the third year in a row Moody’s has achieved strong placement in Working Mother’s list of 100 Best Companies, in recognition of its continued development and enhancement of programs for its U.S. workforce.

“Our employees are at the core of our business, and our success is enhanced by maintaining a diverse and inclusive culture that supports a broad spectrum of perspectives and life experiences,” said Raymond McDaniel, President and Chief Executive Officer of Moody’s. “I’m especially proud that we’ve achieved a top ten ranking by Working Mother for the first time this year, based on the introduction of extended paid leave for parents and other children’s caregivers.”

The recognition reflects Moody’s policies and programs, including its introduction of ten weeks’ paid parental leave, which can be taken at any time during the year of birth or adoption, its leadership initiatives for women, and re-IGNITE, a dedicated career re-entry program to help talented candidates return to the workforce.

“Each year, we look forward to celebrating the 100 Best Companies and shine a spotlight on the Top 10 Companies for the work they are doing on behalf of working parents and caregivers,” says Subha Barry, president of Working Mother Media. “The programs and policies for working parents created by all of the 100 Best set a standard of excellence, and we applaud them for continuing to innovate and address the needs of this important talent sector.”
