As soon as Katelyn Barnwell told her co-workers at Domo that she was expecting, she was able to shop for maternity clothes at Nordstrom and A Pea in the Pod — on the company's dime.

And, thanks to the American Fork company's maternity-leave policy, she has 10 weeks of paid time off. "It's just one thing after another," says a grateful Barnwell as...

5 Brands That Make Original Research Look like an Art Form

Nine out of 10 customers prefer it when brands use original research. No, that stat isn’t backed up by actual research.
