SapientRazorfish Global CEO Alan Wexler Chief People Officer Sharon Kamra What parent doesn’t need a break once in a while? To help its employees relax, this digital consulting company maintains wellness rooms in every office, open for meditating, praying, breastfeeding and just chilling out. Its free concierge service will run their errands, manage home chores, plan vacations and more. On-site gyms, yoga sessions and massage services keep people fit. If they need to talk to a doctor, they can contact a telehealth service 24/7. Flex options are used by up to 90% of workers here; an in-house guide suggests ways to broach the conversation with one’s manager. Expansive paid leaves, subsidized backup care, pre-tax dependent-care accounts and a caregivers’ network make moms happy. SC Johnson Chairman & CEO H. Fisk Johnson Senior VP & Chief HR Officer Kimberly Hauer Convenience is the name of the game at this consumer-packagedgoods company’s HQ. Its on-site amenities hall makes it simple for parents to grab a meal, work out and use a concierge service during their lunch hour. A short drive lands them at its childcare facility (for kids under 12) and recreation and aquatic center. Shuttles transport people between offices and from the train station to work; if their commute is particularly arduous, they may be able to work off-site or enjoy discounted hotel stays when an evening at corporate runs late. Job sharing, reduced hours and partially paid sabbaticals amplify family time. Scripps Health President & CEO Chris Van Gorder
Corporate Senior VP, General Counsel & HR Richard Sheridan Kids like it when their parents work for this healthcare system, which hosts major-movie screenings, Legoland visits and NASCAR meet-andgreets for employee families. Moms appreciate the employer’s free wellness coaching, cooking classes and on-site fitness courses; meditation sessions with mindfulness-based techniques help them beat stress. Parents-to-be enjoy lengthy paid leaves (up to 18 weeks), childcare benefits and reduced work schedules that can last a year. Women are 75% of all participants in the system’s 3,100-plus professionaldevelopment programs, and they earned 82% of promotions in 2016. State Street Chairman, President & CEO Joseph (Jay) Hooley Executive VP & Chief HR & Citizenship Officer Kathy Horgan Employees’ voices matter at this financial-services company. After hearing in 2016 that people valued their time off and desired greater work-life balance, management enhanced its existing policies, doubling fully paid parental leave to eight weeks, introducing four paid weeks of caregiver leave for those with ill family members, and providing everyone with a paid day off during their birthday month. In a recent internal survey, 78% of employee respondents said they had some type of flexibility in their daily schedules. The Working Parents Group gives members a safe space in which to discuss their obligations and figure out solutions.
