The Gates Foundation Announces 52 Weeks Of Parental Leave & Unlimited Time-Off

Talk about loving your bosses and loving your job.  This is the ideal place to work.  The respect that Bill and Melinda Gates have for their employees is by far unheard of in a society where most companies treat their employees like cattle and numbers.

See what the Gates had to say about their new work arrangments.

Our new parental leave program will offer up to 52 weeks of paid time-off for both mothers and fathers during the first year of a child’s birth or adoption. This will enable parents to participate more fully in their children’s lives, while also allowing them the flexibility and financial certainty to meet the needs of their growing families. Ultimately, our parental leave program is focused on healthier babies, parents who are able to thrive professionally, and strong and resilient families. We have also announced that employees will be able to take unlimited time-off without concern about their accrued sick leave or vacation, returning to work more focused and able to take on the foundation’s boldest aspirations.

 – Steven Rice, Chief Human Resources Officer, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
