About The Best Workplaces for Parents
Published together with Fortune, The Best Workplaces for Parents ranking is based upon feedback from 122,482 working parents at Great Place to Work–Certified companies that completed the Trust Index© Employee Survey. Mothers, fathers and their colleagues answered 58 questions about the reality of their day-to-day work experience, including organization-wide support for work-life balance, the quality of benefits, the fairness of opportunities for professional development and advancement, and their overall assessment of the quality of their workplace. To determine the winners, Great Place to Work analyzed how positively mothers and fathers experienced their workplace overall, paying special attention to an index of factors where parents tended to have a less positive experience than colleagues without children. The ranking also takes into account how favorably parents experienced their workplace relative to colleagues without children, as well as the availability and generosity of maternity and paternity leave programs, adoption support and childcare programs. Organizations needed to have at least 50 employees to be considered and were compared to peers of similar size.
