Kimley-Horn Named One of Great Place to Work’s 2021 Best Workplaces for Parents

Kimley-Horn is proud to be recognized again as one of the Best Workplaces for Parents by Great Place to Work! The list was developed based on anonymous survey feedback representing more than 6 million U.S. employees.

To determine the list of Best Workplaces for Parents, the Great Place to Work organization analyzed 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 analysis focused on parents’ feedback for their workplace experience compared to their non-parent colleagues and took into account whether their job level, race/ethnicity, or any other personal characteristic changed the level of support they received as a working parent. Other factors considered were a company’s parental leave, adoption, flexible schedule, childcare, and dependent health benefits, along with whether parenting status influenced how employees from all backgrounds are equally involved in innovation opportunities, believe company values are lived and breathed, and believe management is effective.

At Kimley-Horn, our benefits help us attain our core purpose: “To provide an environment for our people to flourish.” We’re proud to offer a family-focused benefits program to ensure an inclusive culture and help parents and prospective parents spend more time with their loved ones:
