Introducing a New Addition to Our Paid Parental Leave Benefit
Providing our employees with a world-class workplace is a key characteristic that separates our company from others. Wile we provide our employees with a number of benefits, we are proud to announce an addition to our parental leave policy.
While we have always had a parental leave policy, the new feature eases the financial burden that many parents face while out on paternal leave. Employees will now be given a paid leave benefit for a period at 50% their base compensation to take leave to welcome and bond with the child.
This new benefit will hopefully bridge the income gap many face while receiving state & federal leave benefits and allow our employees to enjoy time with a new addition to their families, whether through birth or adoption, birth-mothers and other new parents.
Many other industries have taken to updating their paid parental leave policies to be more inclusive and to address financial concerns, the Waste Industry was certainly lacking. We hope this new benefit will inspire others in the industry to do the same.
