2/7/2003 - Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ: CPWR) achieved 12th place on the 2003 ‘Top 30 Companies for Executive Women” list. Sponsored by the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE), the list recognizes those companies that offer the best possibilities for women to succeed. Compuware moved up the list significantly from an honorable mention position in 2002.
“As with all of our employees, we empower our female employees to achieve career success by offering education, new challenges, networking and an excellent work/life balance,” said Tommi White, Compuware COO. “These practices continue to allow Compuware to recruit, retain and promote female employees.”
Companies on the Top 30 list had to demonstrate at least two women on the board, a steadily increasing number of women in senior management, programs that groom women for upper management, maternity/paternity leave and flextime. In addition to exceeding these requirements, Compuware offers employees on-site daycare, which will be expanded to serve more than 300 children, including those of kindergarten age, in the company’s new headquarters in Detroit. Compuware also dedicates significant resources such as a comprehensive employee assistance and benefit program, an on-site wellness center and an on-site cafeteria, to ensuring a healthy work/life balance for employees.
“We’re honored that the NAFE has recognized our commitment to promoting diversity at all levels of the company,” said Peter Karmanos, Jr., Compuware Chairman and CEO. “Compuware will continue to provide an environment for all of our employees where excellence is encouraged and rewarded.”
“The Top 30 companies are tapping women for senior positions and have the best practices to get them there. These companies actively work to retain their women by offering opportunities to grow and advance and a work culture where they can prosper--and have a life,” said NAFE President Dr. Betty Spence.
