Companies who put people first are reaping the benefits. According to Fortune’s research for its top 25 best places to work list, they found that employee well-being, flexible work schedules and the pursuit of equitable opportunities are driving employee satisfaction. For companies who hit the mark in these areas, 85% of employees say they want to stay in their jobs long term.


DHL Named No. 1 in Best Places to Work

Congratulations to DHL Express for earning the top ranking as the World’s Best Workplace on the Great Place to Work and Fortune annual list. This marks the second consecutive year DHL has ranked No. 1 on the list and the 6th time it’s been named to the top 25 list. As the world’s leading logistics provider, the company has 380,000 international employees and serves more than 220 countries and territories.

According to Fortune, DHL Express has received high marks from its employees: 91% say it’s a great place to work. On the benefits side, the company is far exceeding expectations, with 90% saying DHL offers special and unique benefits. DHL is also a leader in DEI, with 94% of employees saying the company promotes a diverse and inclusive environment.

Kin is proud to partner with DHL to support their working parents. The company provides our Medela Symphony hospital-grade breast pumps and lactation essentials inside their lactation rooms and Mamava lactation pods at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. DHL employees are provided a private, fully equipped space to continue their breastfeeding journey after returning to work.


Chevron Remains at Forefront for Supporting Nursing Employees

Chevron has always been at the forefront of advocating for nursing mothers. Before U.S. medical insurance began covering the cost of breast pumps as preventive care, Chevron subsidized the purchase of personal use pumps for its working moms.

Today, the company provides access to Symphony pumps in many Chevron locations, including at some international locations. Chevron’s commitment to nursing mothers even extends to locations as remote as an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico. The global energy provider currently employs more than 37,000 people and operates in 180 countries.

Chevron recently announced an expansion of nursing benefits to its already robust lactation program. The company fully covers breast milk shipping that includes storage, refrigeration and expedited shipping so that moms can maintain their pumping schedule while traveling for business. Other benefits aimed at supporting new parents include up to 8 weeks of bonding time in the U.S. for new mothers and fathers, private lactation rooms, adjustable chairs with anti-bacterial fabric and refrigerators for storing milk.


Phathom Pharmaceuticals Lauded for Family-Friendly Benefits

Another company going above and beyond in supporting parents is Phathom Pharmaceuticals, who was recently honored by Comparably and ranked No. 4 for its amazing perks and benefits.  And for the second consecutive year, the company was also named by Comparably to its Best Company for Women list. A biopharmaceutical company, Phathom Pharmaceuticals’ mission is to improve the lives of patients suffering from acid-related gastrointestinal disorders. The company is licensed to operate in the United States, Europe and Canada.

According to Comparably, anonymous reviews from Phathom Pharmaceuticals employees indicate that “overall, the entire benefits package is top rate,” and that the company offers “excellent health insurance plans, inclusive benefits, and leave policies to accommodate different stages of employee needs. Competitive salary, bonus, and equity plans. Generous 401k plan.”  Phathom Pharmaceuticals knows how to support new parents, who receive 16 weeks of paid leave and an additional 4-week Bridge-Back-to-Work program to further ease the transition. 

Once back to work, its care continues for new parents. The company offers its employees the full range of lactation benefits from Kin, which includes two types of Medela pumps – the Symphony hospital-grade (multi-user) breast pump and lactation essentials in private lactation rooms at their office, and the Freestyle Flex pump for employees to use when on-the-go. The program also features 24/7 virtual lactation support, a welcome gift box and access to the Mindful Return coaching and community, as well as a host of communications, resources and education to build engagement and awareness with pumping employees.
