In a blog post Tuesday, chief talent officer Tawni Cranz said employees would be paid normally, without “the headache of switching to state or disability pay,” and could return part-time or full-time whenever they wished.
“We want employees to have the flexibility and confidence to balance the needs of their growing families without worrying about work or finances,” Cranz wrote. “Experience shows people perform better at work when they’re not worrying about home.” – Netflix will offer a year of unlimited leave for new moms and dads, Washington Post
I love that a corporate giant like Netflix is openly supporting families like this. Their new policy applies to moms and dads. The challenge is doing this for your own company when you are not a company with a 29 billion dollar valuation.
The same premise holds true, we want the people we partner with and employ to have flexibility and confidence, especially with family. You can find a way, you just have to make it a goal.
