Netflix offers unlimited maternity and paternity leave
If you thought Virgin giving dads a year of baby leave was good, Netflix are taking it up a notch.
They've announced unlimited (for the first year) paid maternity and paternity leave (for both birth and adoptions), which is great for new parents.
They say: "We want employees to have the flexibility and confidence to balance the needs of their growing families without worrying about work or finances. Parents can return part-time, full-time, or return and then go back out as needed. We’ll just keep paying them normally, eliminating the headache of switching to state or disability pay."
"Each employee gets to figure out what’s best for them and their family, and then works with their managers for coverage during their absences."
That sounds nice doesn't it?
A lot of tech companies are getting progressive with their attitude to baby leave, and it seems that, in 2015, the way companies are looking at paternity and maternity leave is modernising.
