CALIFORNIA — One company is offering a huge benefit to those who plan to have children: after maternity and paternity leave, parents are encouraged to bring their babies to work.
WFAA reports Schools Financial Credit Union’s policy allows parents to bring their newborns to work every day until the babies turn 6 months of age or start to crawl.
The policy has been in effect since 2001. More than 130 babies have participated.
“We know going in the employee is not going to be 100 percent productive. That is just part of the program, and it’s part of the intention of the program. It’s not a problem,” said Schools Financial Credit Union VP of Human Resources Lisa Mackay.
