    This supplemental insurance company based in Columbus, GA, celebrated its 60th birthday last year with an entire year of events: parties, contests and giveaways ending with a special day ringing the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Parent-friendly perks: onsite child care (only $520/month and open for the company Christmas party), 30 days paid paternity, onsite chaplains, and a work and family resource center. Nearly half of employees use flexible scheduling here: “dream schedules” allow employees to begin work as early as 5:30 AM, and PTO can be scheduled by the day, week or hour.
