Published together with our partner, Fortune, The Best Workplaces for Parents ranking is based upon feedback 122,482 working parents at Great Place to Work–Certified companies who completed our Trust Index© Employee Survey. Mothers, fathers and their colleagues answered 58 questions about the reality of their day-to-day workplace 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 experience their workplace overall, paying special attention to an index of factors where parents tended to have a less positive experience than colleagues without children. Rankings also take into account how favorably parents experience 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 are compared to peers of a similar size.

Employees say:

“I am almost always able to use standard work hours to go to doctor’s appointments, attend my children’s school events, etc. In addition, Capital One has done other things throughout my almost 16 years at the company that have improved my quality of life. They paid for and enabled me to go back to grad school for my MBA, and they allowed me to work remotely on a flexible schedule so that I could fulfill family commitments. … One of the most unique benefits I have used at Capital One is their backup daycare coverage program. This has been a huge help to my family!”


“The flexibility in regards to work/home balance. I feel comfortable pausing work at 3pm to watch my son’s track meet and then log back in later in the day to ensure the work is getting done.”
