Is Etsy's 26-week paid parental leave policy a good idea?

4:52:00 AM

Beginning in April, Etsy employees will be eligible for 26 weeks of fully paid leave when they become a parent through birth or adoption, regardless of their gender, country of residence or family circumstance. Whether this turns out to be a good policy or not remains to be seen. And whether the policy is appropriate for its business model, or for the business models of companies in other sectors, remains to be seen. What should be clear, though, is that we should let the private sector try these approaches--if they work, more companies will adopt them.
