Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY) has been named a “2021 100 Best Companies for Parents” by Seramount (formerly Working Mother Media). The firm was among the companies recognized for offering inclusive benefits for families and strongly supporting employees throughout COVID-19.

Korn Ferry offers employees a wide range of family-friendly benefits, including gender-neutral paternal leave, flexible work arrangements when returning back to work, backup childcare in centers, adoption reimbursements and fertility benefits.
The firm also implemented several pandemic-related benefits, including increased mental-health coverage for employees and dependents, and increased childcare and healthcare benefits.
“Working parents and caregivers have had to shoulder so much responsibility throughout the pandemic, and our 100 Best Companies continue to offer support through their generous programs and benefits,” says Subha V.
