Goldman Sachs Recognized for Support of Working Parents
The Families and Work Institute (FWI) provides comprehensive research focused on the changing workforce, family and community. In a recent report, Family Matters: The Business Case for Investing in the Transition to Parenthood, FWI profiles Goldman Sachs, among other employers, for its best practices related to helping new parents transition back to work.
The report recognizes Goldman Sachs for a variety of programs and services it offers to support new parents, including onsite and in-home back-up child care, lactation support services and 16 weeks of fully paid maternity, adoption and surrogacy leave. An onsite Expectant Parent Coordinator is also available to employees to provide guidance and support.
Additionally, a virtual Help-at-Home Bulletin Board allows employees to post child care recommendations, and manager training is provided so that managers feel equipped to support their team member’s transition.
These are just a few examples of Goldman Sachs’ commitment to creating an environment that supports healthy, safety, well-being and performance for our people.
