And a Baby Makes Three (Months Off): Paid Parental Leave at 15 High Tech Firms

As of 2015, only 12% of U.S. workers had access to paid family leave. However, recent announcements of generous paid leave benefits by some high tech and financial services firms, followed by legislative actions on their home turfs of San Francisco and New York, have pushed the discussion into the national spotlight.

To learn why some companies are adopting paid family leave, how they are balancing their policies with other business imperatives, and what human capital management challenges they face, IBI conducted in-depth interviews with human resources (H.R.) and benefits professionals at 15 major technology firms.
