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.

VMware

Damion Hamilton Photography

Employees say:

“I have worked at many companies across the Valley and this one is unique in that it cares about its people. They have a very flexible work-at-home policy, which is tremendous in terms of work-life balance. I have special needs child and the ability to take him to his appointments and not feel concerned about my job alleviates a lot of stress in my life.”

 

“Balance of self, family, and work is espoused and encouraged from CEO Pat all the way down. That is something uniquely valuable to so many of us and gives us the flexibility to keep our personal lives in order while contributing what we can to VMware.”
