Great Place to Work® Names RSM One of the 2020 Best Workplaces for Parents™



Great Place to Work® has honored RSM US LLP (RSM) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – on its 2020 Best Workplaces for Parents list. RSM earned this award because the firm has created consistently positive experiences for working parents. This award is particularly significant in light of the extremely difficult and novel challenges facing parents this year.

Great Place to Work determined the Best Workplaces for ParentsTM by gathering and analyzing confidential employee experience feedback representing 4.8 million U.S. employees across more than 20 industries – the largest annual study for working parents to date.

Other companies on this year’s list include American Express, Bank of America, Hyatt Hotels, Intuit, Liberty Mutual, Mastercard, NerdWallet, Salesforce, Target Corporation and Zillow Group, among others.

“We are proud to be recognized by our team for creating one of the best workplaces for working parents,” said Katie Lamkin, chief talent officer with RSM US LLP. “At RSM, we strive to create a people-first culture for all of our people, and we do that by understanding what’s important to them. By understanding our people’s needs, we’re able to provide meaningful resources and benefits to help them achieve their personal and professional goals.”

Employees reported their workplace experiences using the industry-leading Trust Index® survey. The survey is proven to quantify more than 75 metrics of company culture, including levels of trust, pride, management effectiveness, innovation, diversity and equity. All Trust Index© survey results were representative of their entire workforces, and accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% or better margin of error.

Great Place to Work then selected the Best Workplaces for Parents from this dataset using their For AllTM Methodology. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation was based on parents’ scores of trust and fairness. The remaining 15% was based on how parenting status influenced other aspects of employees’ work experience as well as their experience of the company’s leadership effectiveness, meaningful values and innovation.

Great Place to Work’s analysis also focused on how parents’ workplace experiences compare to those of their non-parent colleagues and determining whether their job level, race/ethnicity or any other personal characteristic changed the level of support they received as a working parent. Finally, they reviewed each company’s parental leave, adoption, flexible schedule, childcare and dependent health care benefits.

Full details of the study and findings can be found in the report authored by Great Place to work in partnership with Mavin Clinic.  

“Best workplaces like RSM have fostered dynamic, flexible and transparent workplaces built on trust,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “This gives companies on this list a powerful opportunity not just to do well for their people, but also to do well for their businesses.”

The 2020 Best Workplaces for Parents stand out for demonstrating a caring attitude for their people and by supporting both their professional and their personal objectives.
