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!

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

How to Scale: 3 Tips from VTS’s Jess Scott on How to Go from 200 to 1,000 Employees

Jess Scott has been running HR teams and talent acquisition teams since then. "You would circle in red pen the job they're going to go apply for. That's how you applied!" she says, laughing. "Sending emails, especially with attachments, was still a very new thing."

Inclusive leaders are ones who make their team feel like they belong, like they're valued, and like their whole self is seen and appreciated at work. Being cognizant of different holidays and celebrations can go a long way in doing that.
