    Many companies celebrate “Bring Your Kids to Work Day,” but this cloud-based HR and finance software maker has “Bring Your Parents to Workday.” The company has grown fast over the past few years. Every new hire receives a backpack with a laptop, a branded license plate cover, a Workday baseball jersey with their employee number, and a pair of red socks, to be worn on the last day of the quarter as per company tradition. Holiday parties and after-hours cantina parties are employee favorites here. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
