"Many private-sector organizations in the US are taking a new look at paid family leave--paid time off to enable employees to care for a new child or an ill family member. While overall coverage in the US is low, increasingly diverse companies are starting to see a compelling business case for providing or expanding these benefits. This report builds on BCG's examination of the family leave policies of more than 250 companies, as well as in-depth interviews with 25 HR leaders at large organizations and with representatives of business groups and other stakeholders."
