(3BL Media) Auburn Hills, MI - September 18, 2012 - Chrysler Group LLC has again been named one of the "100 Best Companies for Working Mothers” by Working Mother magazine. This year marks the 13th time Chrysler has achieved this prestigious benchmark.

Chrysler Group earned this distinction by “outscoring hundreds of applicants on the magazine’s extensive survey of benefits, women’s issues and advancement, child care, flexible work arrangements, parental leave and company culture, both in terms of access and usage company-wide.” Companies earning a place on the list will be featured in the October/November issue of Working Mother magazine.

“Being recognized by Working Mother as one of the '100 Best' validates Chrysler Group’s commitment to diversity and work-life effectiveness,” said Nancy A. Rae, Senior Vice President– Human Resources, Chrysler Group LLC. “We strive to provide programs and resources that help our employees balance the demands of work and family. Together with the UAW, we have consistently provided progressive work-life programs, understanding that employees will be more productive and engaged when they have peace of mind at home.”

"The UAW places a high priority on addressing issues at the bargaining table that improve the quality of life for our members and their families,” said UAW Vice President General Holiefield, director of the union’s Chrysler Department. “We’re very proud to work with Chrysler Group to provide ‘people programs’ that help employees maintain a healthy balance in fulfilling their job and family responsibilities.”

This year marks the 27-year anniversary for the “Best Companies” list, which is considered the benchmark for work-life practices in corporate America. Celebrating its 34th anniversary in 2012, Working Mother magazine reaches more than two million readers and is the leading national magazine for career-committed mothers.

“Women are an important part of Chrysler Group’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, and we are privileged to be able to continue the legacy,” Rae added. “Chrysler Group’s commitment to diversity and inclusion will continue to be a source of competitive advantage for our Company.”
