2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies

Hall of Fame

Before they even have kids, employees at this audit, tax and advisory services firm can feel (somewhat) prepared, thanks to their employer’s mentoring sessions for parents-to-be, its group discussions for those going on leave (up to 18 fully paid weeks for new moms), and its lactation program, which offers consults 24/7 and will deliver a breast pump to their homes two weeks before the baby’s due date. When they return to work, they can chat with a new-parent coach: “It helped me think through what was best for my career and family,” recalls senior associate Tara Hinote, a mom of two.
