Sounds like a good policy:
According to the Netflix announcement, new parents, both moms and dads, will have the option to take up one one year of paid time off. Alternatively, parents can arrange working flexible hours, working from home, etc. This announcement is groundbreaking not only because it gives flexibility and paid time off to new moms, but also because it gives the same benefits to new dads. Both biological and adoptive parents are entitled to take advantage of it. This is already raising a new wave for companies offering better leave options to new parents: Microsoft announced extended parental leave later the same week.
