Zoetis Inc. (NYSE: ZTS) today announced that it has been named one of Working Mother magazine’s "100 Best Companies for Working Mothers" for the sixth consecutive year. The publication selects the top 100 companies in the U.S. that lead in areas of female representation and advancement, benefits, parental leave, childcare and flexible work arrangements.

“We are honored to be building a legacy as a consistent member of Working Mother magazine’s top companies,” said Roxanne Lagano, Executive Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer and Communications at Zoetis. “This recognition is a testament to the policies, programs and supportive culture we have established at Zoetis. Our colleagues are empowered to take on challenges and experiences that help them reach their career goals and aspirations, while maintaining healthy and fulfilling personal lives.”

Zoetis ranked highly by Working Mother magazine for its career advancement programs, female representation within the company, benefits and work-life initiatives, and flexible work arrangements.

Saba Belay Named Working Mother of the Year at Zoetis

Saba Belay, Director, Business Analytics, in Zoetis’ Parsippany, N.J. global headquarters, was named the company’s Working Mother of the Year. Saba has two young children: Abigail, 6 and Adam, 4.

A native of Ethiopia, Saba began her career with Zoetis in 2015, and has played a key role in developing advanced data analytics that help the company’s U.S. Commercial teams track sales performance and gain valuable insights into customer purchasing behavior. “My passion is figuring out how to be data-smart in order to make good business decisions,” said Saba. “I'm always looking for opportunities to make things better, easier, and faster. Colleagues at Zoetis are really open-minded, so I am never afraid to present new ideas."

Saba has a consistent record of high performance and achievement. In her four years at Zoetis, she earned two promotions and has been the recipient of many accolades, including the company’s prestigious U.S. President’s Excellence Award. Saba has also been instrumental in mentoring new colleagues, as well as leading a Business Analytics internship program with graduate students from Columbia University and Rutgers University.

“I feel very fortunate to work for a company that not only encourages colleagues to take on new and exciting challenges to grow their careers, but also offers mentorship and leadership training opportunities that help them achieve their goals,” said Saba. “I have had the privilege of being personally mentored by executive team member Kristin Peck, who leads U.S. Operations, Business Development and Strategy at Zoetis, and is a mom herself. Kristin is committed to cultivating confident women leaders who embrace their authenticity and lead positive change in the business. I’m a living example of this. Many of the recent accomplishments in my personal and professional life were made possible because Kristin is a leader who firmly believes that mentoring young employees drives success.”
