(Oakland, December 2, 2020) – Great Place to Work® today announced the 2020 Best Workplaces for Parents™ after conducting the largest-ever survey of working parents, focused on their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Technology giant Cisco moved into the top spot this year, followed by Hilton and Comcast NBCUniversal.
The 100 organizations named Best Workplaces for Parents earned this prestigious award because they have created consistently positive experiences for their working parents trying to juggle jobs with remote education, quarantines, and more in 2020.

Great Place to Work determined the Best Workplaces for Parents by gathering and analyzing confidential employee experience feedback from 430,000 parents across 1,244 U.S.-headquartered companies that employ more than 4.8 million Americans – the largest study of working parents to date.
“These organizations are excelling in doing right by their working parents and parents-to-be,” said Great Place to Work CEO Michael C. Bush. “One of my favorite findings from this research is that when companies are great for parents and aspiring parents, they tend to be great for everyone else as well.”
Full details of the study® and findings can be found in the report “Parents at the Best Workplaces” authored by Great Place to Work in partnership with women’s and family healthcare company Maven Clinic.
The bottom line: Investing in working parents is better for business. Companies that invest in employees and their families see 5.5 times more revenue growth thanks to greater innovation, higher talent retention, and increased productivity.

Employees reported their workplace experience using the industry-leading Trust Index© survey. The survey is proven to quantify over 75 metrics of company culture, including levels of trust, pride, management effectiveness, innovation, diversity, and equity. All Trust Index survey results were representative of their entire workforce and accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error or better.
Great Place to Work then selected the Best Workplaces for Parents from this dataset using its For All™ methodology. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation was based on parents’ scores of trust and fairness. The remaining 15% was based on how parenting status influenced other aspects of employees’ work experience, as well as their experience of the company’s leadership effectiveness, meaningful values, and innovation.
Great Place to Work’s analysis also focused on how parents’ workplace experiences compare to those of their non-parent colleagues and determining whether their job level, race/ethnicity or any other personal characteristic changed the level of support they received as a working parent. Finally, Great Place to Work reviewed each company’s parental leave, adoption, flexible schedule, childcare, and dependent healthcare benefits.
