Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud company, has been named a top workplace on the 2019 list of Best Workplaces for Parents by Fortune and Great Place to Work®. The ranking is based on the anonymous survey responses of over 4 million employees — parents and non-parents — of companies in the United States.
"Yext is proud to be recognized as a Best Workplace for Parents," said Brian "Skip" Schipper, Chief People Officer at Yext. "We think it's important to support our employees who choose to be parents through comprehensive and flexible parental leave, mentorship programs, and more. Our goal is to support Yext families through impactful programs and services."
To deepen its commitment to supporting families, Yext introduced an employee resource group called EXPAND with the mission of providing resources to employees who are parents. Employees have the opportunity to participate in social events like the Yext Families Fair, Take Your Kids to Work Day, talks from guest speakers, and a mentorship program between expecting and current parents, among other family-oriented activities.
In addition to employee resource groups like EXPAND, Yext offers internal mobility opportunities, stocked kitchens, inter-company sports teams, in-house meditation classes, and many other benefits. The company has also been ranked a Best Workplace in New York, Best Workplace in Technology, Best Workplace for Women, and more by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
