We provide a variety of flexible work arrangements to help ensure that our employees can make their significant contributions to Microsoft and our clients while also being able to manage their personal lives.
For instance, employees have the opportunity to work remotely; to job-share; or to compress, reduce and/or flex their hours. In fact, the majority of our people have used one or more of our available flexible work arrangements during the past year, some on a regular basis. These arrangements are not based on level or organization, but on how and if a specific team or the project can accommodate these efforts.
We are committed to providing attractive career opportunities and flexibility for our employees throughout all stages of their lives. We support working parents — both new and existing by offering a variety of programs and benefits.
Microsoft offers birth mothers a total of 20 weeks fully paid leave which includes eight weeks of paid maternity leave plus 12 weeks of fully paid parental leave in the United States. In addition, birth mothers may also take paid short-term disability leave in advance of their Maternity leave – two weeks prior without complications or longer as needed for medical complications.
All other new parents, including adoptive and foster parents may have the benefit of 12 weeks of paid time off.
To provide flexibility, all new parents can split their parental leave into two segments and can return from Parental leave on a part-time basis to help them ease back into the workplace.
Microsoft also has a number of other programs to support leave as well as 10 paid holidays, two personal holidays, 10 sick days annually and generous vacation upon hire. Our paid time off program encompasses paid personal time off and sick leave, providing flexibility for how, when and for what purpose it is taken. The number of vacation days is based on tenure and ranges from 15 – 25 days per year.
Our leave programs provide continued healthcare and insurance benefits.
Microsoft’s short-term disability benefit is employer paid and covers the first 7 weeks fully paid and then moves to 75% of pay for up to 26 weeks. A birth mother with complications may utilize this benefit before or after her 8 weeks of Maternity leave if medical need requires.
We support working parents—both new and existing by offering a variety of programs and benefits.
