Determining the best maternity or paternity leave policy has become an increasingly important issue for business leaders and human resource departments. According to a 2018 benefits survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management, 35% of its members said they offer paid family leave. That is an increase from 2016 when 26% of its members said they offered paid family leave.
The biggest challenge today’s leaders face is keeping up with the perceptions and expectations set by other companies and countries. Employees hear about the best maternity and paternity leave policies and expect your company to provide similar benefits. So, what do you do? That’s the question we want to address.
