Transamerica Recognized as a “Best Company” for Working Parents for Fifth Consecutive Year

Transamerica Also Honored as Champion for Advancement of Women in the Workplace

Transamerica announced today that the company has been named to Seramount’s “2023 100 Best Companies” list, marking the fifth year in a row that Transamerica received this honor. The annual list recognizes Transamerica as a company leading the way in providing working parents with programs and services that help them thrive at work and home.

For its annual “100 Best Companies” list, Seramount looks at several essential areas impacting working parents, including leave policies, workforce representation, benefits, childcare, advancement programs, flexibility, and more. Seramount surveys the availability and usage of these programs, as well as the accountability of the managers who oversee them.

“Our 100 Best Companies are going the extra mile to create inclusive work environments for their parents and caregivers,” said Subha V. Barry, president of Seramount. “We are proud to honor these forward-thinking companies.”

In September 2023, Transamerica was also included on Seramount’s “Top 75 Companies for Executive Women” list, which recognizes companies that champion advancement of women in the workplace, including succession planning, profit-and-loss roles, gender pay parity, support programs, and flexibility programs.

As part of Transamerica’s commitment to supporting working parents, the company sponsors Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), including the Women’s Impact Network and Family Connections Network. ERGs, which are open to all employees, host regular events to highlight members’ interests and issues and allow members to provide insight and feedback to the company’s leaders.

“At Transamerica, we believe in providing a pathway to success for all our employees. Maintaining an environment that supports parents at every level of the company is a fundamental component of that objective,” said Holly Waters, chief people officer at Transamerica. “By offering benefits and flexible work options, our goal is to help employees flourish without compromising the priority of family, and we are proud that our efforts have been recognized by Seramount year after year.”
