Proud to Be A Best Workplace for Parents in 2020
Baird ranks No. 56 on the 2020 List from Great Place to Work
Baird is honored to be one of the 2020 Best Workplaces for Parents, a list compiled by Great Place to Work based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. Baird ranked No. 56 out of 100 companies on the list.
“We are delighted to be recognized by our associates for being a great workplace for parents,” said Steve Booth, Baird President & CEO. “Our steadfast commitment to being a great place to work for all enables us to attract and retain the best in the business.”
Leslie Dixon, Baird’s Chief Human Resources Officer, added, “One of Baird’s core beliefs is that how we succeed is as important as if we succeed, and creating a supportive and flexible environment for working parents is a key part of our success. Continuing to build on this foundation is part of Baird’s ongoing journey in being a best place to work for all.”
The Best Workplaces for Parents ranking considered feedback from over 4.8 million employees, both parents and non-parents, working at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. To be considered, companies had to have at least 50 responses from parents. Companies were also required to respond to a supplemental survey concerning conception-related benefits and how they are supporting working parents during the pandemic. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what parents say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential at work, no matter who they are or what they do. The remaining 15% of the evaluation was based on how parenting status influenced other aspects of employees’ work experience, including the extent to which companies lived up to their values, people’s opportunities to innovate and the effectiveness of company leaders. The evaluation also considered each company’s parental leave, adoption, flexible schedule, childcare and dependent health care benefits.
Baird is committed to creating an inclusive and collaborative environment that promotes personal balance and well-being for all associates. In 2020 Baird was also ranked as a Best Workplace for Millennials, for Finance & Insurance employers and among the 100 Best Companies to Work For.
