Want paid parental leave? You should work for a tech company. Microsoft recently increased its paid leave to 20 weeks for mothers and 12 weeks for fathers. Even more impressive is Netflix, which announced recently that it will provide up to a year of paid parental leave for employees.

It\u2019s also noteworthy because the one-year paid leave includes fathers along with mothers. To visualize Microsoft and Netflix\u2019s progressive approach, visual communication and design agency\u00a0Column Five created a simple a graphic. It emphasizes how these two tech companies are generously compensating their employees compared to the legal minimum of zero weeks. Over the years, tech companies have made groundbreaking changes in terms of work-life balance.
