2018 Best Companies For Dads

As more employers recognize that fathers want to be as involved as mothers in raising their children and thus need support in the workplace, the Working Mother Research Institute wanted to celebrate the organizations that help men be the best dads they can, which also benefits moms at work and at home. To determine this inaugural list, we went back to the applications for the 100 Best Companies and pulled questions directly related to dads, including those about paternity leave, adoption leave, surrogacy and fertility benefits, phaseback-to-work programs, childcare options and employee-resource groups for men. Thirty-five companies had scores high enough to earn spots on the list.
