Mithun Introduces Paid Parental Leave Benefit

Date Posted: 02.14.2017

Mithun recently launched a paid parental leave benefit that provides up to six weeks of salary for employees welcoming a new child through birth, adoption or foster care placement. The gender-neutral plan supports both women and men wishing to take time off to care for and bond with their new child during their first year together.

“We are continually looking for ways to support our employees in their work-life balance,” explains Mithun president Dave Goldberg. “Introducing a new child to the family is a cherished time in anyone’s life, and we are happy to provide this financial support for our team members.”

The new plan is informed by a growing number of studies that demonstrate economic and health benefits of paid leave. It is one of many steps Mithun is actively taking to support employees’ diverse needs and create an exemplary workplace experience.
