About The Best Workplaces for Parents

To determine the Best Workplaces for Parents list, Great Place to Work® compared 443,258 parents’ and non-parents’ responses to more than 50 survey questions anonymously rating their employers. The data revealed that after having children, parents – especially mothers – have a different experience than their colleagues of the inclusivity and opportunities for advancement at their organizations, among other differentiators. To determine the list, Great Place to Work took into account organizations’ success in overcoming these differences in experience to create a great place to work for all employees, regardless of parenting status. They focused their analysis on parents’ overall feedback, analyzing how their experiences compare to that of their colleagues, and the quality of the benefits provided to support them.

About The Best Workplaces in Diversity

Great Place to Work based its ranking on a data-driven methodology applied to anonymous Trust Index™ survey responses from 442,624 employees at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations.
