Great about Paternity and Maternity leave.
I have not used this benefit but know that athena pays full pay for for 3 month maternity leave
3 months of paid maternity leave (unsure about the length of paternity). For wanting to be a progressive tech company, should consider extending to 6 months. Would retain more top female talent that way. Onsite childcare is very expensive.
6 weeks for all parental leaves is great and shows how committed athena is to keeping it's talent throughout the changes in their lives.
Mothers get 6 weeks short term disability at 100% of pay and then 6 weeks of child bonding leave at 100% of pay. Fathers get 6 weeks of child bonding leave at 100% pay.
12 weeks of maternity leave and 6 weeks paternity leave
12 wks maternity and 6 wks paternity
I think allowing paternity leave is a great benefit to allow dads time with their newborns
athena has maternity and paternity leave that they pay 100% of salary during that time.
