HALL OF FAME
New York, NY
CEO—North America Julie Sweet Chief Leadership & HR Officer Ellyn Shook
Working flexibly is a way of life for employees at this professionalservices company: In 2016, 85% of them telecommuted or worked remotely, while 80% adjusted their schedules at some point. Its ingenious SmartWork program helps them further explore alternative arrangements and reduces the need for travel. Everyone gets 18 to 27 days of Paid Time Off per year, plus a floating holiday and five unpaid days to use as they like; sabbaticals and job-guaranteed leaves are available. Videoconferencing makes meetings flexible for parents, and is so common that the company spends 9 million minutes doing it each month.
