26 Companies with 12+ Weeks of Paid Maternity Leave

A list of companies hiring on Elpha and offering at least 3 months of paid maternity leave.

Are there certain benefits that can serve as a strong signal of inclusion in the workplace? Benefits that, even if they don’t apply to us, still set a company apart?

As women cycle through stages of life, we prioritize different benefits and cultural qualities at work. When I was earlier in my career, it was important for me to find a place that provided a clear path for career growth . And, these days a flexible work schedule has risen to the top. The cool thing about having a community with over 50,000 women in tech is that we’re all different! The benefits and cultural qualities we’re looking for in a company vary widely. 

So, let’s turn to the data. 

This year's Top Workplaces for Women survey found that paid parental leave policies are one of the inclusive benefits women look at to determine whether a workplace is women-friendly.

Below, we’ve pulled 26 companies hiring through Elpha that offer 12+ weeks of paid maternity leave .
