McGinnis Lochridge is proud to announce the firm is a Best Place for Working Parents™ in Austin, Texas for 2021. Launched in Fort Worth last year, the program has now expanded to nearby cities and recognizes companies with supportive policies and practices for all employees, and particularly working parents.
"At McGinnis Lochridge we want everyone who works here to feel supported and that their unique needs are being met,” said managing partner Doug Dodds. “That includes working parents who face significant pressures, which have only increased in the past year. This new designation indicates that we are on the right path in creating a welcoming environment for everyone who works here.”
To receive a Best Place for Working Parents™ designation, companies go through an online self-assessment process that uses an evidence-based approach to evaluate their family-friendly policies. Each question in the self-assessment asks about specific policies that research has proven to positively impact employee attraction, retention, satisfaction and productivity.
McGinnis Lochridge has put in place family-friendly policies and practices that support working parents. They include: parental leave, flexible work schedules, and a lactation room.
