Best Place for Working Parents® Dallas, a local partner of The Best Place for Working Parents® national initiative, is presented by the Dallas Regional Chamber and PNC Bank. Launched in 2021, the initiative recognizes family-friendly workplaces in the Dallas Region and aims to raise awareness of the importance of family-friendly benefits and policies for employers and workers.
Through its proprietary business self-assessment, employers may quickly determine whether their workplace qualifies for a Best Place for Working Parents® business designation by comparing their benefits to companies of similar size and industry.
Businesses that achieve the Best Place for Working Parents® designation will receive a digital badge to tout their organization as a Best Place for Working Parents® via web, social media, and print.

Replacing an employee costs a business 6-9 months of that employee’s salary.
