Chief Peo­ple Of­fi­cer Catherine Moy Life can get in­tense at this ac­count­ing and con­sult­ing firm, particularly around tax time. Moms share their work-life strate­gies in affin­ity groups for women, work­ing par­ents and those us­ing flex op­tions; when they need a hand, they may call on the em­ployer’s sub­si­dized backup care ser­vice. “Pre­dictable work breaks” (adopted in 60-plus of­fices after a 2016 pilot) en­cour­age peo­ple to sched­ule blocks of time away from the job. Of­fice man­ag­ing part­ners ar­range “busy-sea­son breaks” in the form of yoga classes, field trips, art ses­sions and ice cream so­cials. Work “black­outs” al­low em­ploy­ees to avoid check­ing dig­i­tal de­vices over the week­end.
