An online study of more than 700 working mothers was made. According to the survey, 90% of the respondents said that if there were no hindrances, they would work full-time, part-time or even under a flex time management. Only 11% women declared that they would not work at all. Almost 69% of the respondents feel that women can “have it all.”

Jill Smart, Accenture’s chief human resources officer said that top employers are offering several innovative programs that facilitate their employees to balance their family and work commitments at the same time. He further said, “These companies understand that to meet the needs and realities of today’s workforce, they must offer employees choices across the lifecycle of their careers, providing new solutions at different points in employees’ lives.”

The three most frequently offered flexibility programs according to respondents are flex-time, part-time and a modified work week. Only 17% reports that no flex-programs are offered by their employers. The survey also found that almost 85% of respondent reports that their employers understand their child-care issues. Only 54% of working mother takes benefit of flex programs as often as they need to.

According to Carol Evans, CEO and president, Working Mother Media, “Accenture not only offers essential benefits like flextime and telecommuting-they go above and beyond with a range of best practices and policies to ease the difficulties for working parents and their families.”
