Flexible working
Cisco creates the collaboration technology that changes when, where and how work gets done – and we put this technology and these principals into practice. Work isn’t a place we go, it’s a thing we do. We try to integrate our work and life outside of work for employee wellness and wellbeing.

Plus, it helps with our goals to be more green and sustainable.

There isn’t a “one size fits all” solution, for example, some roles by their nature require more time in an office, but others can be based remote full-time. From flex time to part time to sabbaticals to emergency time off, managers work with employees to find the right balance for each situation.
parental leave
Overview: Parental leave policies
The moments that matter the most are the ones you never forget. The more personal they are, the more memorable they become. When you’re having a baby, or another milestone, Cisco wants to support you and your loved ones. Whether you’re a main caregiver, a supporting caregiver, whatever your gender and no matter how you become a family (birth, adoption, surrogacy, becoming grandparents, etc.) we’re here for employees

A global minimum of 13 weeks paid time off for the main caregiver and 4 weeks for the supporting caregiver, open to any gender. There’s also additional time off for related appointments including surrogacy and adoption like regular checkups, taking time for meetings and paperwork related to surrogacy and adoption, and appointments for fertility treatments.

There’s also support when you come back to work, through our Employee Assistance Program, to guide employees through anything from post-partum depression or how to plan financially.

There are other little touches, such as adding a category to our Expense tools, which allows you to be reimbursed for costs associated with delivering breast milk back to your baby while traveling on Cisco business using the breast milk delivery service of your choice. Or, allowing new parents to get extra technology to allow them to work more flexibly from home as they ease back into work life.

    • Starting November 1, 2017 the new policy terminates maternity and paternity leave, instead expanding the firm’s definition of parent to “main and supporting caregiver” — a gender-neutral term, the company says — for its full- and part-time employees. In the United States, main caregivers will now receive 13 weeks of consecutive leave, up from just four weeks, and unlimited paid time off for all appointments. The updated policy includes the existing benefit of four weeks of leave with time off for appointments for supporting caregivers, as well.
