NEW YORK, NY—Working Mother revealed its third annual list of the “Best Companies for Dads,” celebrating organizations that lead in the areas of paternity leave, childcare, flexible schedules, and more. Herman Miller was one of the 85 companies recognized on this year’s list.
“Millennial dads continue to be outspoken about wanting to be involved parents and needing the support of their companies in order to do so,” says Subha V. Barry, president of Working Mother Media. “These trendsetting organizations strive to create an inclusive environment for all working parents, and we applaud their efforts in helping to erase the stigma attached to men taking full parental leave and utilizing flexible schedules to be more involved on the homefront. By doing so, it helps moms succeed both at home and at work, and puts them on more equal footing in the process.”
Herman Miller offers a variety of family support benefits for working parents including flexible work arrangements, paid parental leave, college admissions support, and a daycare employer match. Additionally, Herman Miller promotes a total well-being approach focusing on good physical health, overall financial health, emotional health, and active community engagement. Working dads receive up to four weeks of parental leave, and this applies to dads who are caring for and bonding with a newborn or newly adopted child.
“Being a working parent today may be tougher than it’s ever been, as arrangements for school and daycare are ever-changing,” said Kim Chaumillon, Vice President of Global Engagement, Equity, and Inclusion. “We encourage our employees to bring their whole selves to work and aim to offer programs that support their changing needs. Being recognized as a top company for dads reflects this commitment.”
The Company has also been previously recognized as one of the 100 Best Companies for Working Mothers. This is the first year it has been part of the Best Companies for Dads list.
