S&P Global is a financial services corporation headquartered in New York City with offices and employees worldwide. The company primarily assists businesses with financial services and analytics. A majority of the companies full-time employees hold non-managerial positions. As of October 2017, the company upped their paid parental leave offering from three to eight weeks for both full-time and part-time employees. S&P Global continues to offer a flex-time policy and an unlimited sick day policy, both of which are designed to make it easier for parents to manage shifting priorities.
In addition to flexibility and leave, would-be parents employed at S&P can also receive up to $10,000 worth of adoption assistance and $25,000 worth of support for fertility treatments. There have been no other updates to their parental leave programs in the past year.
Fatherly’s 2018 rankings are based on a scoring metric inclusive of data related to company policies on the following issues: paid parent leave, ramp-back time, flextime, onsite childcare, childcare subsidies, backup childcare, number of sick days, support groups, fertility aid, adoption aid, student loan assistance, education funding, bereavement leave, elder care planning. Length of paid leave, onsite childcare, and ramp-back time were the most heavily weighted ranking factors.
