Broad is committed to supporting our employees with caregiving responsibilities, at home and in the workplace.
Seramount (formerly Working Mother) has recognized the Broad Institute as one of its 100 Best Companies in 2022— and a Best Company for Dads for the second consecutive year — for our ongoing commitment to forward-thinking workplace programs in the areas of family support, parental leave, enhanced mental health services, flexibility, and inclusive gender-neutral benefits for families. Broad was also named a 100 Best Company in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2022 , and we are proud to be one of the few non-profit organizations named on the list once more. Here, at a glance, are some of the caregiving benefits available to benefits-eligible members of the Broad community.
Becoming a parent

Adoption assistance: Broad employees may seek reimbursement for up to $10,000 of qualified adoption expenses, with a lifetime maximum of $30,000.
Child care briefings: To demystify the often daunting task of finding child care, Broad's work-life and well-being office offers monthly onsite briefings on finding and evaluating child care.
Personalized care searches: Through our Care.com benefit and KGA Life Services, Broad’s employee assistance program, Broadies can request free, personalized child and elder care research and matching.
