Bank of America Corp. has been named to Working Mother magazine's annual list of 100 Best Companies. To compile the list, the magazine looks for companies that offer telecommuting, job sharing and related perks.
Working Mother praised several recent upgrades to benefits: For example, the bank increased paid maternity, paternity and adoption leave to 12 weeks from eight. Parents who earn up to $55,000 (formerly $34,000) and use the onsite child care centers are eligible for subsidies and scholarships. And mothers who take off one to three years can tap a new program called Career Connections to keep them informed about career development opportunities.
