The FINANCIAL — Adobe on October 14 announced improvements to its family time-off benefits for India-based employees to better support them during a birth or adoption of a child.
Highlights of Adobe’s new India leave programs, effective immediately, include:
Maternity Leave: Twenty-six weeks of paid time for the birth or adoption of a child, including time for recovery and bonding (previously 12 weeks).
Paternity Leave: Two weeks of paid-time off for fathers to bond after the birth or adoption of a child (previously one week).
“At Adobe, we often say that our most important assets leave the building at the end of the day,” said Donna Morris, senior vice president, People & Places, Adobe. “By providing our employees with more time to spend with a new baby, we want to make it easier for them to balance their home commitments with work. As a parent myself, I know first-hand how important it is for new moms to be home with their baby without worrying about their financial situation.”
Morris added, “We especially hope this move will make it easier for our female employees to stay in the workforce after they have children, and we hope other employers will make similar investments in their employees. There are so many opportunities for talented employees here in India, and diversity in our workforce is a critical priority for our continued growth.”
