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:

“Zillow Group has helped me to finally understand what the definition of ‘work-life balance’ really means. The paternity leave that was rolled out in 2016 is also amazing. I had the opportunity to spend the first two months with my newborn at home, without being stressed about my income while away. As a father, I am very grateful for this!”


“This is the best place I’ve ever worked and I worked for our #1 competitor for almost a decade. We have a phenomenal and encouraging meritocratic culture, and we have the best benefits an employee could ask for. The management cares intently about our work-life balance and our families. My wife has had several medical challenges in the last two years, and it is made crystal clear to me that my family comes first. If I need to leave early, or take the day off, or work from home, I am allowed the convenience in order to take care of my wife and kids, while being able to complete my work duties.”
