  • Millennials value parental leave more than earlier generations — 83% of American millennials say they would be more likely to join a company offering such benefits.

  • Legislation currently moving through Congress, backed by broad public support, would make 12 weeks of paid family and sick leave available to most workers.
  • A number of states — including California, Washington, New Jersey, and New York, among others — have passed new or expanded paid family and medical leave policies in recent years. In addition numerous localities have passed paid family and medical leave legislation.
  • Track with changing regulatory requirements in the US and globally,
  • Streamline workflows,
  • Reduce liability and management costs,
  • Reduce HR time and reliance on vendors,
  • Integrate with HRIS and payroll, and
