Facebook has revealed that all full-time dads around the world will be able to take four months of paid parental leave. The news comes a week after CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that he will be out for two months to be close to his baby.baby Facebook

Η policy will mainly affect "new fathers and in same-sex relationships according to Lori Matloff Goler, Facebook's chief of staff.

"During the review of the parental leave policy, we decided to make this change, because it is something right for our people and their families," he said, according to VB.

"Studies have shown that when employees χρειάζονται χρόνο για να είναι με τα νεογνά τους, τα αποτελέσματα είναι καλύτερα για τα παιδιά και τις οικογένειες.”

Έτσι δείχνει να έχει υπάρξει μια αυξανόμενη στροφή για τη βελτίωση της ισορροπίας εργασίας-προσωπικής ζωής τα τελευταία χρόνια. Η Spotify ανακοίνωσε επίσης την περασμένη εβδομάδα ότι όλοι οι εργαζόμενοι της εταιρείας θα μπορούν να λάβουν γονική άδεια έξι μηνών με πλήρεις αποδοχές. Και τον περασμένο μήνα, το has revealed it will adopt an increasingly popular approach to leave – no minimum or maximum number of days.

So, starting with 1 January of 2016, Facebook should extend its existing parental leave policy to include all new parents, and the leave can be taken up to one year after the birth of the baby.

This change in the culture of work could have multiplier effects. When large companies such as Facebook and Spotify publicly announce such improvements and benefits to their employees, the issue becomes more difficult to ignore than other businesses.
