Texas Instruments Incorporated Named a 2008 Working Mother 100 Best Company by Working Mother Magazine

Celebrating corporate America’s family-friendly leaders

Sep 26, 2008

DALLAS (September 26, 2008) -- Working Mother magazine has named Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) one of the 2008 Working Mother 100 Best Companies. From flextime and telecommuting to backup child care and parental leave, TI is expanding the concept of family-friendly benefits to ensure they are relevant for all employees. This is the 13th consecutive year TI has been named on the list.

“The economy is not going to alter the commitment of Texas Instruments to working mothers, because they've made family-friendly policies a part of their corporate DNA,” said Carol Evans, CEO, Working Mother Media. “Supporting families is a vital part of their culture and not just an added benefit.”

Added Suzanne Riss, Editor in Chief, Working Mother magazine, “Texas Instruments knows that their investment pays for itself through employee loyalty and they realize that productivity depends as much on satisfied staffers as on smart processes. By helping employees manage their work/life demands, Texas Instruments is creating a highly motivated workforce.”

“TI's continued inclusion on the "100 Best" list reflects the company's efforts to help employees manage the demands of their jobs and personal lives,” said Tegwin Pulley, TI vice president responsible for workforce development, diversity and work-life strategies.

"Our work-life programs are important to attract and retain our talented workforce. I am proud to see TI's name on this list once again," Tegwin said.

Texas Instruments was selected for the 2008 Working Mother 100 Best Companies based on an extensive application with more than 500 questions. Seven areas were measured and scored: workforce profile, compensation, child care, flexibility, time off and leaves, family-friendly programs, and company culture. For this year’s 100 Best, particular weight was given to family-friendly policies, flexibility, leave policies and benefits for part-timers.
