10 Companies With Flexible Jobs for Working Parents

Topics: Data & Research

America is a tough place for working parents. Lack of paid family leave, expensive childcare options and corporate cultures that encourage constant work often leave parents scrambling. It’s hard to balance child-rearing and a paying job, when many jobs demand more than 9-to-5.

One option that can alleviate some of these challenges: flexible jobs. While telecommuting, working part-time or working on a flexible schedule won’t solve every problem facing working parents, non-traditional schedules can help make the juggling act a little easier.

With this in mind, job listing site FlexJobs recently ran a list of the top 15 companies for working parents that are now hiring for flexible jobs. All of the companies on this list have current listings on the site, and all made Fortune‘s Best Workplaces for Parents list, which ranks companies based on features like flexible schedules, emphasis on work-life balance and supportive coworkers.
