NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SapientRazorfish, a transformation partner designed to help companies reimagine business through radical customer centricity, has been recognized by Working Mother magazine as one of the 2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies. The company was cited for its dedication to enabling a well-balanced lifestyle for working families and for pioneering policies in the areas of advancement of women, flexibility of work time, childcare and paid parental leave.
"At SapientRazorfish, we are committed to building a balanced workplace environment where our people are empowered and rewarded for bringing their whole selves to work all while keeping up with the demands of life and family," said Sharon Kamra, Chief People Officer at SapientRazorfish. "We are grateful for all of the working parents who enrich our culture through unique perspectives, work experiences and life skills, all of which are critical components for delivering transformative work for our clients." Sharon will be recognized by Working Mother as SapientRazorfish's Working Mother of the Year at their upcoming WorkBeyond Summit, taking place October 23-24, 2017 in New York City.
SapientRazorfish has a spectrum of programs and benefits available that are designed to help working mothers succeed professionally, which have resulted in 95% of mothers returning to work after maternity leave in 2017. Most notable is the SapientRazorfish Career Returns program, a 12-week paid program created for experienced professionals who have pressed pause on their professional endeavors for an extended period of time and are looking to re-enter the workforce.
"This year's winning companies know the value of keeping their employee moms engaged and supported," said Meredith Bodgas, Editor-in-Chief at Working Mother. "They use schedule flexibility, paid parental leave and family benefits to ensure that parents can develop meaningful careers while leading satisfying home lives."
In addition to providing support for working mothers, SapientRazorfish is committed to cultivating an environment that encourages the advancement of women across every discipline within the organization. The Women's Leadership Network (WLN), for example, fosters enriching programming and dialogue around gender diversity. Open to men and women across global offices, WLN actively engages SapientRazorfish people in learning and networking events focused on career development, ongoing discussion forums, and companywide conversations that celebrate diverse perspectives and leadership styles.
