Since Apple promoted a former retail executive to its top HR position in February, the company has added a slew of. Among them:
- An expanded program to match employee donations to charities. The three-year-old U.S. program will run in all countries where Apple has offices. And the computer giant says it will donate $25 per employee hour of nonprofit work, up to $10,000 per employee. Apple has 98,000 employees.
- If an employee dies, the company will accelerate his or her stock benefits so surviving family members can benefit from the sale.
- Pregnant women can take up to four weeks off before delivery and 14 weeks after. New dads can take up to six weeks of leave.
- The organization will subsidize student loan refinancing and offer an education reimbursement for all classes.
The changes came after the HR VP polled employees about which benefits were most important to them.
