Facebook staff will now be able to take four months of paid paternity leave. The perk is open to all employees, regardless of their position within the company or their location.
The social network made the decision less than a week after Mark Zuckerberg announced he will be taking two months off himself once his daughter is born .
“Our approach to benefits at Facebook is to support our employees and the people who matter most to them,” said Lori Matloff Goler, the company’s head of human resources.
“We want to be there for our people at all stages of life, and in particular we strive to be a leading place to work for families.
“An important part of this is offering paid parental leave, or ‘baby’ leave,” she said. Until now, the benefit has only been available to senior employees.
Facebook CEO Zuckerberg announced back in July that he and his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, were expecting a baby. However the couple have yet to reveal the due date.
