Goldman Sachs Reaffirms Support of Working Families by Increasing Paid Parenting Leave
As part of Goldman Sachs’ ongoing commitment to working families, the firm is now offering four weeks of paid parenting leave to spouses and partners worldwide following the birth or adoption of a child, doubling the two weeks previously offered. This is in addition to the competitive paid maternity, adoption and surrogacy leave for primary caregivers we currently provide.
“Goldman Sachs is constantly examining and evolving our benefit offerings to ensure we meet the needs of our people inside and outside of the office,” says Edith Cooper, global head of Human Capital Management.
With the changing needs of today’s families, providing longer and more flexible leave time when welcoming a new child allows employees a better opportunity to balance their work and home lives.
“Both parents play an important role at home,” adds Edith. “This new policy is designed to encourage and allow employees to spend more time with their families.”
