Bain & Company Named One of America's Best Places to Work for New Dads by Fatherly, the Leading Online Destination for Dads

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 12, 2016) - Bain & Company announced that it has been recognized as one of the best places to work for new dads by Fatherly, the digital lifestyle guide for men entering parenthood. Bain was ranked in the top 20 on the organization's 2016 Best Places to Work for New Dads Report.

"Bain has consistently placed great importance on recognizing the needs of all of our working parents and continues to create workplace programs that enable them to successfully balance their professional and family responsibilities," said Russ Hagey, Bain's Chief Talent Officer. "We remain committed to innovating in our industry and are proud of our people and team culture and initiatives. We recently announced eight weeks of paid parental leave and new childcare offerings, in addition to long-standing flex-time programs that make it possible for both fathers and mothers to share in the joy of caring for their children while sustaining a career in consulting."

To compile the list, Fatherly examined parental leave policies and flexible work practices at large companies (> 1,000 employees) and small businesses (<250 employees) supporting new dads. Fatherly worked with HR departments from leading companies who answered questions around parental leave and leading academic and advocacy organizations working on parental leave to field examples. The report focuses on a few key areas, including paid leave for new fathers, corporate flex time policies and their adoption across the workforce, corporate childcare policies, and additional company benefits that explicitly add to family wellbeing and overall work/life balance.

"Public attitudes about the equal sharing of parenting responsibilities have evolved, and fathers have become actively engaged in childcare," said Simon Isaacs, co-founder of Fatherly. "This honor is a testament to their commitment to working dads and families, and we commend all of the employers across the country whose parental leave practices and strategies have adapted to the evolving dynamics of parenting roles."

The second annual Best Places to Work for New Dads list saw a massive increase in new commitments for working dads. In comparison to 2015, the average number of weeks in the top 50 companies almost doubled from 4 to 2015 to 7.5 in 2016. To view the full list, visit www.fatherly.com
