Quotes
  • "My company, Oliver Russell, has offered paid maternity leave since 2011 and added paternity leave in 2014. With just 11 people, having anyone out of the office for an extended period is challenging. It means extra work for everyone else and adds measurable short-term costs. But I can tell you that having maternity and paternity leave is one of the things I’m most proud of. It is partly why Oliver Russell won the “Best for the World” award from B Lab, the nonprofit that runs B Corporation certification."

Quotes
  • "At Patagonia, for the past five years, we’ve seen 100 percent of moms return to work after maternity leave. Moreover, the availability of on-site child care remains important for allowing mothers to breast-feed infants on demand. For the past five years, our turnover rate for parents who have children in the program has run 25 percent less than for our general employee population."

Seventh Generation employees who give birth receive 100 percent of their salary for a 12-week period and we also offer four weeks of paid paternity and adoptive parent leave. Employees can take unlimited paid sick leave for themselves or for an illness in their immediate family. If our employees can find balance with their home life, we're confident they will be happier and more effective at work."
