I’m happy to share that Sprout Social has been named a Great Place to Work® Best Workplace for Parents for a second consecutive year! We are honored to be included this year alongside other notable companies who are prioritizing the health and well-being of parents and their families.
Parenting in what I like to call the “age of disruption” is no easy feat. From school closures to doctors appointments and endless other responsibilities, our parents have faced immense uncertainty throughout the pandemic and the shift to remote work. At Sprout, we believe that all parents should be empowered to take the time needed to raise a family while having a flourishing career.
Our Parents@Sprout community resource group has been instrumental in equipping both existing and new parents with the resources needed to maintain a healthy work/life balance. From manager guidelines and re-onboarding templates to setting work boundaries and expectations, all parents are supported with a team-wide understanding of how they best operate and thrive in their professional lives. The appreciation for parents at Sprout runs deep, and our team members are always quick to share words of encouragement and reassurance:
“They are heroes and I feel for their exhaustion. Anything I can do to be an ear or help out, I will.”
“When I say “this can wait” or “no rush,” I mean it. I reach out and ask more so I won’t forget to, but don’t expect a follow-up until their return.”
“My question is never more important than their parental responsibilities, and it’s 100% ok if they need to respond a day later or ask me to reschedule a meeting.”
We are honored to be recipients of this highly competitive award that acknowledges our investment in supporting #TeamSprout parents. Thank you to everyone on our team whose candid feedback made our placement on this list possible.
