In­sti­tute Direc­tor Eric Lan­der Chief Peo­ple Of­fi­cer Andy Porter In 2016, this biomed­i­cal and ge­nomic re­search in­sti­tute of­fered its em­ploy­ees 44 work­shops and cour­ses de­signed to en­hance their pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment, the out­growth of a $1 mil­lion in­vest­ment it made the year be­fore. Women were 57% of those who ben­e­fited, learn­ing skills that would be re­quired of them as lead­ers—from the best ways to spear­head projects and meet­ings to how to have pro­duc­tive con­ver­sa­tions with those they man­age. To help those with fam­ily as­pi­ra­tions, the em­ployer grants new pri­mary care­givers 12 fully paid weeks off, and re­im­burses em­ploy­ees for one el­i­gi­ble child­care ex­pense per year (worth up to $7,500).
