Fatherly Names RSM one of the 50 Best Places to Work for New Dads
Fourth annual report celebrates leading family leave policies of American companies
RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as one as one of the 50 Best Places to Work for New Dads by Fatherly, the leading digital media brand for dads. RSM is one of just 50 companies included on the annual report highlighting the best paternity benefits offered by companies in the United States.
“At RSM, we truly seek to understand the needs of our diverse clients and of our diverse people,” said Katie Lamkin, chief human resources officer with RSM US LLP. “We know that one-size doesn’t fit all when it comes to benefits, so we monitor trends and get feedback from our people on a regular basis regarding what they find most valuable. Rankings such as this one are good indicators that we’re on the right track and that we’re providing benefits that enhance the quality of our people’s lives.”
“Since Fatherly began compiling this report we’ve seen companies offering new fathers increasing amounts of paid parental leave. While this is a very promising trend, we wanted to dig even deeper this year to unearth programs that help parents after those first few months,” said Andrew Burmon, editor-in-chief, Fatherly. "The companies on this year’s list have clearly demonstrated that they are dedicated to supporting families.”
Together with the nation’s leading experts on family leave and workplace policy advocacy, the National Partnership for Women & Families and The Families and Work Institute, Fatherly evaluated the policies and programs extended to new parents. Additionally, and as a departure from years past, Fatherly’s methodology weighed not only the total amount of paid leave offered for new parents but also recognized exceptional programs that both directly, and indirectly, benefit fatherhood. Such programs include adoption expense support, onsite childcare, a child care subsidy, the number of paid sick days offered to take care of family members, bereavement leave, elder care planning, and education funding. To be eligible for Fatherly’s list, companies must employ a minimum of 1,000 employees.
