Netflix Offers Paid Unlimited Maternity And Paternity Leave To Employees

Netflix recently announced its employees would soon enjoy unlimited paid maternity and paternity leave on their first year as mum and dad, as part of the tech company’s policy in fostering freedom and responsibility culture, the company’s blog post said.

The streaming media provider also said the new policy is designed to keep talented individuals at the company’s employment and covers adoption.

“Today, we’re introducing an unlimited leave policy for new moms and dads that allows them to take off as much time as they want during the first year after a child’s birth or adoption,” said the blog.

Unlimited Leave With Pay

In line with the expanded maternity and paternity leave policy, Netflix assured employees there is no ground in worrying about the finances.

“We’ll just keep paying them normally, eliminating the headache of switching to state or disability pay,” explained the blog.

Quality Assurance

Should any of the new parents surmise parenthood takes more time, Netflix offers another versatility in making decisions.

“Parents can return part-time, full-time or return and then go back out as needed,” said Netflix’s blog.

Tawni Cranz, the company’s chief talent officer, mentioned that based on experience, employees perform better when they do not worry about home and such expanded parenthood leave supports their employees in adjusting to their new lifestyle without compromising quality work.
