Big Four, top firms among 'Best Companies for Dads'

Working Mother magazine named its inaugural class of the "Best Companies for Dads," which featured a number of top accounting firms.

For the first time Tuesday, Working Mother recognized companies that "help dads succeed at home and work, with paternity leave, adoption leave, surrogacy and fertility benefits, phase-back-to-work programs, childcare options and employee-resource groups for men."

Earlier this year, Working Mother released its 2018 list of the "100 Best Companies" for new parents, in which Deloitte, EY and PwC were recognized as "Top 10" companies in parental leave benefits. Ninety-nine percent of Working Mother's 100 Best Companies offered paid paternity leave and paid adoption leave, versus 29 percent and 28 percent, respectively, of companies on the 2018 SHRIM Employee Benefits Report.

The 2018 Best Companies for Dads list was not ranked. Recognized accounting firms, in alphabetical order, include:

  • BDO USA
  • Deloitte
  • EY
  • PwC
  • RSM
