SYRACUSE, NY (November 1, 2021) – Terakeet has been named a Best Employer for Parents in the 2021 Worklife Awards, hosted by Digiday, Glossy, and Modern Retailer. The annual program recognizes the top employers nationwide and the values that set them apart.
The Best Employer for Parents Award specifically honors the companies that have proven to be the most flexible and accommodating to their working parents. Terakeet was recognized for its generous family benefits offerings, including extensive, fully paid parental leave, lactation facilities, and flexible work arrangements.
“Terakeet’s paternity leave provided me the opportunity to focus on my family and the invaluable first moments together that I’ll cherish forever,” said Senior Account Manager Ken Schiefer.
Terakeet was named one of five national finalists in the Best Employer for Parents category, which also includes Vox Media and PMG. Other category finalists include Sephora, Shopify, and Verizon.
“At Terakeet, we know that the most important things in life are often outside of the office walls,” says Terakeet Chief People Officer Lynn Fraas. “We’re honored to be recognized for this award which celebrates our continued commitment to building a flexible and supportive workplace.”
The award winners will be announced in a live, virtual event hosted by Digiday on Thursday, December 9th.
