Great Place to Work® has honored KnowBe4 as one of the this year's Best Workplaces for Parents™. This is KnowBe4’s first being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at 62nd place. Earning a spot means that KnowBe4 is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
The Best Workplaces for Parents award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 6 million current U.S. employees. In that survey, 96% of KnowBe4’s employees said KnowBe4 is a great place to work. This number is 37% higher than the average U.S. company.
“We have many benefits for employees who are parents or prospective parents, including fertility support, adoption assistance, paid parental leave, an employee resource group dedicated to parents, breast milk shipping for traveling parents and a miscarriage bereavement policy,” said Erika Lance, chief human resources officer, KnowBe4. “In HR, we have worked hard to create an environment where parents can truly feel supported at their place of employment by being open to new ideas for new benefits and resources that parents could benefit from. We know that family is the most important thing and we are proud to make this list for the first time in recognition of the support we offer to parents at KnowBe4.”
The Best Workplaces in Parents list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.
Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated.

“Congratulations to Great Place to Work’s Best Workplaces for Parents™,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “The pandemic presented parents with unique challenges that impacted their work- and home-lives.
