Parental leave policies have experienced a shift in recent years. What many years ago was considered an extra-special benefit for women who had given birth is now a common organizational policy that applies to birth mothers, fathers, and, in some cases, same-sex couples and adoptive parents. Changing demographics and societal norms are making companies reassess this hot topic.
