ZX Ventures, a division within the beverage giant Anheuser-Busch Inbev, invests in, develops, and helps launch an ever-growing portfolio of new drink brands, products, and technologies. The company also goes out of its way to raise a glass to its working parents.
Though ZX Ventures, as a standalone unit, is pretty small with just about 100 employees, it leverages its position within a much larger corporation to provide the competitive perks and partnerships one would expect from a major employer. These range from healthcare, like the Cigna Fertility and Contraception Program and the Cigna Surrogacy Program — as well as an impressive $25,000 lifetime reimbursement for fertility treatments and egg storage through a partnership with WINFertility.
With backup childcare through Bright Horizons, telehealth through Amwell and Cigna’s MDLive, ZCX Ventures opted to go to the professionals within each field to make sure its employees are well supported across the board.
ZX also makes sure to support its working parents year-round instead of just when they’re bringing new kids into the family or someone’s sick. The company and its partners provide virtual programs and workshops on a regular basis, including Bright Horizons programming that helps prepare kids for the return to school, sessions on coaching parents to better support their LGBTQ+ children, and more casual events like a virtual version of Take Your Kids to Work Day.
