Two global law firms make Fortune list of parent-friendly workplaces
An annual survey of how parent-friendly workplaces are includes two global law firms this year.
The Fortune 50 Best Workplaces for Parents is based on feedback from more than 4.6 million US employees at Great Place to Work-certified companies.
This year’s cohort includes Cooley at number 11 and Orrick in 18th place.
They are the only two firms from the legal services industry to make the top 50, which is topped by hotel group Hilton. Three of the Big Four services firms, which all provide legal services too, also make the list with PwC and Deloitte ranked in the top 10 and EY at 14.
Top-ranked law firm Cooley offers generous parental leave benefits, including an increased number of weeks of paid leave for all new parents.
The firm also provides an option for lawyers returning from leave to phase back in by working a reduced schedule, without prior approval, for a period of up to six months.
And it offers a Women’s Initiative, enabling lawyers to take an extended leave of absence and providing a person of support leading up to and during the leave.
