Multinational company rolls out new leave policies for parents and family caregivers
MANILA – Microsoft Philippines has introduced a new suite of enhanced leave benefits for its employees, including a minimum of 20-weeks paid leave for birth mothers and a minimum of six-weeks paid leave for new fathers.
We believe in fostering a healthy work-life balance. And at times, your personal commitments and responsibilities outside the office deserve all your focus. This is something Microsoft fully understands and supports,” described Karrie Ilagan, Microsoft Philippines Managing Director.
The company’s enhanced leave benefits also cover adoptive parents and parents who choose to have a child via surrogacy.
Likewise, the Information Technology leader has leave policies for family caregivers—allowing employees to take a four-week full-paid leave to care for immediate family members with serious health conditions.
“Our employees bring their best to work everyday to support our mission, strategy, and culture. In return, we want to bring the best to them as well by continually providing them world-class benefits to ensure they have the time they need to take care of those that matter the most in their lives,” concluded Ilagan.
Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT” @microsoft) is the leading platform and productivity company for the mobile-first, cloud-first world, and its mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
