    Seramount, a strategic professional services and research firm, has revealed its annual list of the 2023 100 Best Companies for working parents. 

    This year’s winners continue to set the standard by providing inclusive benefits for families, including paid gender-neutral parental leave, subsidized child care, bereavement leave after miscarriage, reimbursement for fertility expenses, and increased mental health benefits for employees. 

    Spring Health is one of the 100 companies that earned a spot on this year’s list.

    "We're proud to be named one of the world's best companies for working parents because supporting every member of our team through all of life's challenges is our guiding principle," says Spring Health Chief People Officer Karishma Patel Buford. 

    "Our parental leave policy surpasses our peer benchmarks, and our parent and caregiver employee resource group, OffSpring, is building community, safeguarding mental health, and bringing awareness to the challenges working parents face."

    “Our 100 Best Companies are going the extra mile to create inclusive work environments for their parents and caregivers,” says Subha V. Barry, President of Seramount. 

    “In addition to gender-neutral parental leave, organizations are upping their benefit offerings to cover necessities like childcare and sick-child care. Not only that, they recognize that this generation of workers will likely have to care for a sick family member at some point and are providing the support to do so. We are proud to honor these forward-thinking companies.”
