The Largest-Ever Study of Working Parents.

440,000 total working parents surveyed at 1,244 U.S. companies within the past year.

The pandemic has triggered a parenting crisis, causing burnout among working parents and wiping out years of progress for working mothers and fathers.

But at the 2020 Best Workplaces for Parents™, caregivers have a dramatically better experience that produces benefits for them, their colleagues and the bottom line.

Download our report now to read key findings from Great Place to Work’s study of working parents—the largest ever, based on feedback from over 800K survey responses.


You’ll learn:

What new programs and practices the Best Workplaces™ are offering to prevent parental burnout and workforce dropout through the pandemic. 

  • Which racial groups are being left behind in key areas including compensation, a sense of belonging and career growth.
  • How cutting-edge parental benefits attract and retain diverse talent, improve employee well-being and lower healthcare costs.


To be eligible for the World’s Best Workplaces list, a company must apply and be named to a minimum of 5 national Best Workplaces lists within our current 58 countries, have 5,000 employees or more worldwide, and at least 40% of the company’s workforce (or 5,000 employees) must be based outside of the home country. Extra points are given based on the number of countries where a company surveys employees with the Great Place to Work Trust Index©, and the percentage of a company’s workforce represented by all Great Place to Work surveys globally. Candidates for the 2017 Worlds Best Workplaces list will have appeared on national workplaces lists published in September 2016 through August 2017.
