The information technology firm boosted its parental leave policy this year; primary caregivers can now take 26 weeks of paid time off, and secondary caregivers can take 12 weeks of paid time off to bond with a new baby or adopted child, at 80% of on-target earnings — including base salary, commissions and bonus (up to a maximum of $5,000 per week). And, after taking parental leave, employees are eligible for a gradual return-to-work schedule (four days per week) for four weeks. Another bonus for new parents who work at Salesforce? A one-time $250 payment that parents taking a leave can use for take-out meals.
Salesforce also reimburses employees up to $10,000 per child for eligible expenses related to adoption and provides financial assistance for up to $10,000 per lifetime maximum to help with the expenses associated with using a surrogate to assist in carrying and giving birth to a child.
