'Badger ranked number 5 on the annual list for providing family-friendly practices and benefits which create a fun and high engagement workplace for all employees.'
2016 - Fatherly - Small Businesses Leading The Way For New Dads
'The company has a “Babies At Work” program that encourages new parents to bring their urchins with them until they reach 6 months or begin crawling, which, when you think about it, is far more sensible than a lot of companies’ “bring your dog to work” policies. Like Patagonia, a 50 Best mainstay with (slightly less) crunchy vibes, Badger Balm opened its own Waldorf-inspired day care facility 3 years ago to better support its working parents. If 5 weeks of leave isn’t doing it for you, Badger lets new parents take another 6 months off unpaid, with their job fully protected.'
