ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.– University of New Mexico Hospitals (UNMH) has been named to the first-everWorking Mothermagazine “Best Companies for Hourly Workers” list.

Only six companies were selected based on an extensive application created in partnership with Corporate Voices of Working Families, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit membership organization. The application included questions about workforce, benefits, training, development, advancement programs, child care, flexibility programs and paid time off.

Public and private firms in any industry, with the exceptions of government agencies and firms in the business of providing work-life services, with at least 500 U.S. employees were invited to participate. UNMH was one of only two hospitals named to the list.

“We’re honored to be a part of this inaugural list,” said UNMH CEO Steve McKernan. “We know our hourly employees are a strong and integral part of our 24/7 workforce. Staff members at UNM Hospitals are our greatest asset in providing all members of our community with accessible, quality health care.”

Working Mother magazine reaches two million readers and is the only magazine for career-committed mothers. The Best Companies for Hourly Workers list can be found in the May issue of Working Mother and at www.workingmother.com/bestcompanies.
