Netflix parental leave policy neglects workers who need it most

Sharon Florentine | Sept. 15, 2015
Netflix is making headlines with its expanded parental leave policy, but will employees actually use it? And what about the Netflix hourly, lower-paid workers excluded from the policy?

Extending parental leave policies to all workers would show that Netflix is committed to its talent at all levels, and is serious about attracting and retaining good people. In the cutthroat talent war in Silicon Valley, doing so could force other IT companies to follow suit. In a competitive talent marketplace some organizations are regularly upping the ante when it comes to benefits for their employees in order to attract the best talent.
