Meghan Mitchell is a busy mom to twin four-year-old girls. She and her husband both work full time, and she's responsible for getting her girls to and from day care each day. What makes that job a little easier is that Mitchell works at the corporate headquarters of Home Depot in Atlanta. The retailer recently opened an onsite child care facility there that has space for 278 children. It's a benefit Mitchell is incredibly grateful for.

"It helps me to be more productive and just to have peace of mind while I'm at work, knowing that my girls are onsite," says Mitchell, Home Depot's senior manager of medical and health management. "They are at such an amazing place. They are part of our corporate culture, which is such a fun and supportive environment, and it takes the worry element out of my day because I know that they are in such a good place."
