Many tech companies today are talking about parental leave, but what impact does this have on your business? In this session, we will outline the business importance of parental leave, sharing GoDaddy’s case study of going from offering just the basics for new moms to offering a highly competitive parental leave that allows all new parents to welcome their new baby. Katee and Rob will share how GoDaddy got here, the benchmarking we did (and continue to do) to stay competitive, and the extras that make this special time for our employees easier. We’ll share the Power of Parental Leave and how it has impacted our employees in a positive way.
