Bright Horizons Congratulates 76 Clients Named to Working Mother's 100 Best
Date:10/28/2008

Honors its own Working Mothers Hurricane Heroes

WATERTOWN, Mass., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Bright Horizons Family Solutions, the world's leading provider of employer-sponsored child care, early education, and work/life solutions, salutes its 76 clients that were recently recognized as "100 Best Companies" by Working Mother magazine. Nine out of the top 10 companies are clients of Bright Horizons, underscoring the critical role high-quality child care plays in creating great workplaces for parents.

Bright Horizons will also honor three of its own employees who are themselves both working mothers and child care heroes. At the Working Mother 100 Best Companies Awards Dinner this week, Bright Horizons Chief Executive Officer Dave Lissy will pay tribute to employees Carol Ennis, Tasha Dillard, and Yolande Kirton who all showed boundless grace and talent as mothers to their own families while heading into the eyes of Hurricanes Gustav and Ike to ensure that critical child care remained available for families working in Louisiana and Texas for employers including JPMorgan Chase and West Jefferson Medical Center.

"We are proud to have been chosen as the child care and work/life partner by more than three-quarters of the Working Mother 100 Best Companies and congratulate our clients for creating strategic work/life programs that help employees succeed personally and professionally," said Bright Horizons Chief Executive Officer Dave Lissy. "We are also proud to recognize our own working mothers who volunteered to go into the areas hit hardest by this season's hurricanes to care for children in need. Their compassion and dedication to young children not only makes them exceptional mothers, but also drives them in providing extraordinary support and services to other families."

The efforts of Ennis, Dillard, and Kirton, who headed into New Orleans and Houston as most people were evacuating the areas, enabled critical personnel at Bright Horizons' client companies to remain focused on their work while having the peace of mind that their children were safe and being cared for nearby. The child care operation Bright Horizons arranged at West Jefferson Medical Center, for instance, operated 24x7 to support essential health care workers who worked round-the-clock for a week straight through preparations for Hurricane Gustav, the hurricane itself, and the aftermath.
