The 4th Annual Report Celebrates the Leading Family Leave Policies of American Companies
Morrisville, NC, June 17, 2018 – Lenovo announced today that it has been recognized as one of the 50 Best Places to Work for New Dads by Fatherly, the leading digital media brand for dads. Lenovo is one of just 50 companies included on the annual report highlighting the best paternity benefits offered by companies in the United States. Lenovo ranks #2 overall on the list, providing 24 weeks of paid time off of maternity leave and 8 weeks of paid time off for paternity leave.
“Since Fatherly began compiling this report we’ve seen companies offering new fathers increasing amounts of paid parental leave. While this is a very promising trend, we wanted to dig even deeper this year to unearth programs that help parents after those first few months,” said Andrew Burmon, Editor-In-Chief, Fatherly. "The companies on this year’s list have clearly demonstrated that they are dedicated to supporting families.”
Together with the nation’s leading experts on family leave and workplace policy advocacy, the National Partnership for Women & Families and The Families and Work Institute, Fatherly evaluated the policies and programs extended to new parents. Additionally, and as a departure from years past, Fatherly’s methodology weighed not only the total amount of paid leave offered for new parents but also recognized exceptional programs that both directly, and indirectly, benefit fatherhood. Such programs include adoption expense support, onsite childcare, a child care subsidy, the number of paid sick days offered to take care of family members, bereavement leave, elder care planning, and education funding. To be eligible for Fatherly’s list, companies must employ a minimum of 1,000 employees.
