The Center for Creative Leadership is global provider of leadership development with 12 offices worldwide. Its 19-acre campus in Greensboro serves as a foundation for the organization’s research, publication, and product development work.
In 2018, the organization implemented a Parental Leave benefit for benefits-eligible U.S. employees who become parents through birth, adoption, or placement of foster children. This improves on their previous policy which requires employees to use paid time off and short-term disability benefits.
Their current parental leave policy added two new forms of PTO: parental medical leave and parental care leave.
The former is an enhancement to a medical leave of absence taken for childbirth and recovery. PML complements short term disability benefit by covering the 5 workday waiting period at 100 percent and by bringing the 60 percent pay benefit up to 100 percent pay for the medical portion of parental leave. The duration of this leave is usually 6 or 8 weeks but may be longer. On the other hand, PCL offers 4 weeks of 100 percent paid leave for care and bonding time with a newborn, newly adopted child, or newly placed foster child. This leave may be used following a PML or as stand alone leave for an employee who becomes a parent but did not give birth.
The Center for Creative Leadership also offers a flexible work environment and comprehensive medical coverage among several other high-quality benefits for its employees.
