TRUMPF Inc. to Offer Paid Parental Bonding Leave as well as Family Leave
FARMINGTON, Conn., July 2, 2018 – TRUMPF announced today that it will offer a paid Parental Bonding Leave to men and women as well as a paid Family Leave to care for a family member with a serious health condition.
TRUMPF understands the importance of supporting families when adding a new child – whether by birth or adoption. As a result, the company’s new Parental Bonding policy offers an additional 4 weeks paid leave, now allowing mothers up to 12 weeks paid Maternity Leave to care for a new child.
The company will offer fathers or same sex partners the opportunity for up to 4 weeks paid leave to look after their newest family members. This policy reflects the changing needs of families and demonstrates TRUMPF’s commitment to supporting its employees. “We believe that offering a parental bonding opportunity to all of our eligible employees will help to address their family’s work-life balance within the first year of parenthood” explained Peter Hoecklin President & CEO of TRUMPF.
In addition, the company also offers a new Family Leave policy which allows up to 2 weeks of paid leave for employees to look after family members with a critical health condition. “TRUMPF is a family-owned company and our culture values spending time with loved ones” said Mr. Hoecklin. “Unfortunately, some of those times can be difficult and we want to make it possible for TRUMPF employees to care for their family.”
