San Mateo County has had a longstanding commitment to helping their employees balance their personal and professional demands through the provision of various types of leaves and options for time off. This has permitted an employee to address important professional and/or personal concerns, (i.e. health problems, family matters) or to realize a personal goal (i.e. extended vacation, professional degree) while still retaining employment status as a County employee. Ultimately, this “win-win” situation contributes to greater employee satisfaction and retention of valued employees.
