Policy changes made life sweeter for new parents at this financialservices firm in 2016. Everyone who has a child here still gets 22 job-guaranteed weeks off, but fully paid parental leave has doubled to eight weeks for moms and four weeks for dads and those who adopt. The availability of subsidized backup care has also doubled to 200 hours per year, with usage subsequently increasing by 60% over 2015. The firm’s six formal flex options allow parents to manage childcare and pursue personal goals; nearly all employees use flextime or telecommute on a monthly basis.
