Mattel employees who want to attend their children’s soccer games and school plays can take 16 hours of paid time off each year to do it.
Full-time employees may participate in their children’s school activities or volunteer at school events that don’t involve their own kids.
If they want to volunteer elsewhere, they can find opportunities through the Mattel Children’s Foundation, which links employees, families and friends with local nonprofits. Workers have volunteered for tutoring, mentoring, painting murals, building playgrounds and other jobs.
The toy company also encourages employees to donate money to colleges and to charities with a focus on children. Mattel matches the contributions of full-time employees dollar-for-dollar up to an annual limit.
