ABBOTT PARK, Ill., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Abbott (NYSE: ABT) announced today that it has been named one of the 100 Best Companies by Working Mother magazine.  This was the tenth consecutive year that Abbott has been included on the prestigious list, which recognizes companies for leadership in providing family-friendly benefits, programs and workplace culture.  

"Abbott's inclusion on the Working Mother list for the past decade is a testament to our longstanding commitment to connecting people with their potential, helping them to succeed and build extraordinary careers," said Stephen Fussell, senior vice president, Human Resources, Abbott.  "We also continue to focus on creating and implementing innovative, targeted programs that meet the evolving needs of our employees, their families and our growing business around the world."

Abbott Recognized as a Premier Employer In addition to being included on the Working Mother list for ten consecutive years, Abbott has been named to DiversityInc magazine's list of the top companies for diversity for seven years and Hispanic Business magazine's list of the Top 60 Diversity Elite for four years.  The company also has been recognized by The Scientist magazine as a top employer for scientists for seven years.  Additionally, FORTUNE has named Abbott as one of "America's Most Admired Companies" every year since the list's inception in 1983, including naming Abbott the No. 1 Most Admired Company in its industry sector in 2010, in part for the company's strong performance in people management.  In addition, Abbott has been named a great place to work in more than 20 countries around the world.
