Paid Family Leave and Human Capital Management

August 31, 2017 @ 12:00 PM

Where: Zevin Asset Management (11 Beacon Street, Boston)

Zevin Asset Management, in association with BASIC, is pleased to present a brown bag lunch with PL+US (Paid Leave for the U.S.) a research and campaign group tackling paid family leave policy in the U.S.

More than 114 million people in the United States lack access to paid leave in order to care for newborns and family members who are ill. One in four women return to work within two weeks of giving birth. And benefits are often unequal, with longer leave for higher-wage employees and birth mothers (compared with dads or adoptive parents).

Some leading companies have proactively improved paid family leave benefits in order to attract talent, close the stubborn gender wage gap, and improve worker morale and engagement. But practices vary widely, and many companies do not publish basic benefits information. Family leave policy is key for investors seeking to assess companies’ social risks and opportunities, as well as the state of human capital management.

Join us for a brief presentation by PL+US’s Annie Sartor on the state of paid family leave at U.S. companies. We’ll review highlights from PL+US’s benchmarking reports and have an open discussion about next steps and shareholder advocacy.

Bring your lunch & join the conversation!
