15 Companies Supporting Working Parents with These Childcare Benefits

Offering good childcare benefits is one of the top ways employers can combat the pay gap, but it's also simply good for business: studies have shown that offering childcare benefits can reduce absenteeism by as much as 30%, and turnover by up to 60%.


Although not all companies can live up to the childcare perks (like multiple onsite daycare facilities) offered by tech juggernauts like Google and Apple, there are other childcare-related benefits that make a big difference for all working parents. And especially moms, who tend to bear the brunt of childcare responsibilities.



From generous paid parental leave (we'll be doing a dedicated post on that soon), gradual returns to work, paid time off to take care of sick children, and childcare benefits like backup daycare and flexible spending accounts, there's a lot that employers can do to help ease the burden of childcare expectations placed on women.

Check out the benefits these 15 companies offer to support working parents' childcare needs -- and to help ensure that women don't have to choose between their careers and their children!
