Methodology

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.

Comcast

Jeff Fusco—AP for Comcast

Employees say:

“Being a working mom, I longed to work for a company where flexible-time, or work-from-home opportunities are made available to employees. I have never expected to find such a company that would offer both, and I am very happy and appreciative of that. Even though I work the normal 8-5 job, management allows me to attend to personal and medical appointments without issue, so long I get my work done.”

 

“I love that I can be the best leader I can be, while still being the best mom I can be. I have worked for organizations in the past where this wasn’t valued. Because Comcast values this about me, I am more willing and able to go above and beyond, and create a similar environment within the team I lead.”
