New York Life Recognized As One Of Working Mother's "100 Best Companies For Working Mothers" For Fifth Consecutive Year

Company Applauded for Its Commitment to Nurturing and Retaining A Diverse Group of Employees

NEW YORK, September 21, 2004 — For the fifth year in a row, New York Life Insurance Company has been named one of Working Mother's "100 Best Companies for Working Mothers." The publication recognized New York Life as one of the top companies and praised the leading mutual life insurance company for its menu of programs designed to help all employees achieve a healthy work/life balance.

"We are very proud to receive this important distinction from Working Mother for the fifth consecutive year, which recognizes our unwavering dedication to a talented and diverse workforce," said Sy Sternberg, chairman and chief executive officer of New York Life.

"We applaud New York Life for its serious commitment to helping employees attain professional success and care for their families," said Carol Evans, chief executive officer of Working Mother Media which publishes Working Mother.

"We're continuing to develop and enhance programs that meet the needs of all our valued employees, including our working mothers," said Angela Coleman, vice president in New York Life's Human Resources Department. "We're pleased that Working Mother has acknowledged these efforts, and we're delighted to reach the five-year milestone."

Working Mother pointed to several programs and services as examples of what makes New York Life among the nation's best 100 companies for working mothers:

  • The Women's Leadership Project, a leadership program designed to foster and enhance the personal and professional development of individuals;
  • The Employees' Health Department, a fully-equipped, on-site medical facility with four full-time doctors and five registered nurses as well as a functioning emergency room;
  • The New Mother's Center, a comfortable space for new mothers who continue to breast feed after returning to work following maternity leave, and;
  • An Elder Care Tool Kit for the "working caretaker," which includes topics such as advance directives, power of attorney, financial and banking concerns, as well as legal and estate information. The company also offers employees private sessions with a Geriatric Care Manager to discuss individual situations and needs.
