We continuously seek options and tools to enable employees to achieve their work/life balance goals.

Flexible Work Arrangements

For many years, Edelman has supported a variety of reduced workweek and flextime arrangements. Today, nearly 75 percent of our offices offer flexible work time. Telecommuting is also available to select U.S.-based full-time or part-time employees. Worldwide, almost 40 percent of our offices offer transportation vouchers, while nearly 10 percent provide other forms of transportation support.

Adoption Assistance

For more than a decade, Edelman has provided support for child adoption and now offers $5,000 in assistance to full-time employees and $3,000 to part-timers. Of course, pets are family too, so recently we introduced a pet adoption assistance program in the U.S. that provides up to $100 in financial reimbursement for pet adoption.


Our sabbatical program in the U.S. and other select markets provides tenured staff with up to six additional weeks of paid time off. Sabbaticals are offered when an employee has been with the company ten years and again at every five-year interval thereafter.

Anniversary Award Program

Edelman’s Anniversary Award program acknowledges our employees who achieve tenure milestones with a monetary gift. Our goal through this global program is to demonstrate that their service and commitment is valued by Edelman.

    Star Star Star Star Star Former Executive Creative Director in New York, New York State

    The employment package is very standard with a strong base salary and a bonus tied to performance (rated through overall company health and practice health). Edelman offers a 4 week sabbatical after 10 years of service which is very appealing and many of my colleagues took advantage of it.

    OK benefits package with the typical health and 401k benefits. Snacks and coffee in the office and small HHs every week. Wellness reimbursement.
