·3-min read

SAN FRANCISCO, December 06, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Great Place to Work® has honored Thumbtack, the modern home management platform, as one of this year's Best Workplaces for Parents™. This is Thumbtack’s first time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at 77th place, out of over 1,500 applicants. Earning a spot means that Thumbtack is one of the best companies to work for in the country.

The Best Workplaces for Parents award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 6 million current U.S. employees. In that survey, 92% of Thumbtack’s employees said Thumbtack is a great place to work. This number is 33% higher than the average U.S. company (59%).

"Our goal is to make sure parents and caregivers on our team always feel supported. Each and every one of our employees plays a critical role in cultivating a culture that is supportive and inclusive for all — and a workplace where nobody shakes their heads when your kids (or pets) join in on meetings," says Jelena Djordjevic, VP of People at Thumbtack. "From equalizing paid parental leave to fertility benefits and our Parents Employee Resource Group, we’re committed to making sure Thumbtack provides the resources and community to set our employees up for success."

The Best Workplaces in Parents list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.

"Congratulations to Great Place to Work’s Best Workplaces for Parents™," says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. "The pandemic presented parents with unique challenges that impacted their work- and home-lives. But these companies paid close attention to the experiences of their working parents and ensured that they didn’t have to choose between a thriving career and being present for their children."

Thumbtack has previously ranked Fortune Best Workplaces in Technology™ 2020, Fortune Best Workplaces in the Bay Area™ 2020, and Best Small & Medium Workplaces™ 2019 lists.
