CHICAGO — Grant Thornton LLP is one of Working Mother magazine’s “100 Best Companies” for the 14th consecutive year. The 100 Best Companies, representing more than 2 million U.S. employees, recognizes inclusive benefits for families, including gender-neutral parental leave, gradual phase-back after leave and accessible, affordable childcare.
Grant Thornton offers several benefits that helped again secure its spot among the 100 Best Companies:
- Grant Thornton provides paid maternity and paternity leave, telecommuting, flexible work arrangements and discounts for childcare.
- Grant Thornton introduced a voluntary “Mentor Moms” program to help guide new mothers through their transition back to work from parental leave.
- Grant Thornton covers the cost of breast milk shipping when employees are traveling for work.
Women comprise approximately one-third of Grant Thornton’s 2019 class of partners, principals and managing directors, contributing to a diversity of ideas and perspectives at the firm’s leadership level.
“Cultivating a culture of diversity and equality where everyone can contribute and thrive is core to who we are as a firm,” said Brenda Wagner, chief people and culture officer of Grant Thornton. “Grant Thornton is proud to employ many working mothers who support our clients and staff, and who we in turn support, and we’re honored that Working Mother has again recognized our commitment.”
“Our 100 Best Companies are the standard of excellence and continue to pave the way with the work they are doing on behalf of working parents and caregivers in the U.S.,” says Subha Barry, president of Working Mother Media. “We celebrate their efforts and applaud them for addressing the needs of this important and ever-growing sector of talent.”
