When it comes to human resources practices and workplace policies, startups can notoriously lag behind. Whether it’s due to staff size or company culture, founders and startup leaders can struggle with creating HR policies. Tech Co., a tech-startup news resource, asked six entrepreneurs to explain their parental leave policies and how management decided to offer this benefit.
From “open door” policies to unrestricted vacation time, these six companies show that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to company policies, like parental leave. One company even eschews the idea of parental leave entirely. Instead, they focus on creating a professional development plan with each individual to ensure they have the tools they need for success, including remote work, flexible hours and vacation time.
Learn how these companies have incorporated feedback from teammates and other startups to create the best-fit for them, and more in this edition of Founders Flash.
