In normal times, juggling parenthood and work is a tough task. During a pandemic, this becomes downright overwhelming. The Great Place to Work conducted a study to determine the best workplaces for parents in a survey that included 1,244 US companies and a total survey response of 854,654.
Additionally, a selection of 181 contending companies provided detailed information on their programs specific to
supporting working parents. These companies represent a wide cross-section of industries, including healthcare, hospitality, technology and financial services.
It was determined that companies that invest in employees and their families see 5.5 times more revenue growth thanks to greater innovation, higher talent retention, and increased productivity. When companies reduce burnout, their employees are 20 times more likely to stay. The Best Workplaces are thinking beyond maternity leave to support employees throughout the entire journey of planning and raising a family. From fertility coverage to return-to-work coaching and support finding child care, the Best Workplaces are investing in benefits that provide continuous care and holistic support for parents at every stage.
