DALLAS - The Dallas office of Barnes & Thornburg has been named a 2022 Best Place for Working Parents®. The award highlights companies that offer family-friendly policies and practices to support employees, specifically working parents.
The designation is gained through completing a self-assessment that reviews 10 family-friendly policies, including company-paid healthcare coverage, paid time off, parental leave, nursing benefits, child care assistance, backup child care, flexible hours, and remote work. This is the second year in a row that the Dallas office has received this recognition.
Barnes & Thornburg’s parental leave policy affords 16 weeks of fully paid parental leave to all teammates, inclusive of adoption. Additionally, the firm has a Talent Resource Group for working parents and allies, BTParents. This group exists to provide a supportive network for parents and allies.
In the Dallas office, there are several ways families are incorporated into workplace activities, including hosting a family-friendly annual event for clients; Bring Your Child to Work Day; a Halloween event; and including our teammates’ children in the monthly office birthday video message.
