Netflix Announces Unlimited Leave for New Parents

The online streaming giant recently announced in a blog post that employees would be offered unlimited paid leave to both male and female new parents, with flexible hours also available to staff returning after having children.

The post, which is credited to Tawni Cranz, Netflix’s Chief Talent Officer, states that staff’s pay will remain the same but that maternity and paternity leave will be unlimited, with staff able to return to work flexibly if they want to.

“We want employees to have the flexibility and confidence to balance the needs of their growing families without worrying about work or finances. Parents can return part-time, full-time, or return and then go back out as needed. We’ll just keep paying them normally, eliminating the headache of switching to state or disability pay. Each employee gets to figure out what’s best for them and their family, and then works with their managers for coverage during their absences.”

The bold move is prompted, according to the post, because the company’s staff are so vital to the successful firm, which is a leader in the online streaming marketing. The firm already offers staff unlimited time off, making the new policy more orientated around proving themselves to be parent friendly than creating new rules.
