Mental health days, flexible schedules and lots of compassion from our managers. Children welcome on zoom calls! We’ve done some meet the pups and kids zooms. Encourage our employees to share their Home/life on slack.

@Head if Humans1, do you have a PTO policy? We thought of offering mental health days, but we feel like people won’t use their existing PTO and in the end of the year will be asking to increase rollover. Our employees now have about 20 days of PTO, plus floating holiday to use, plus 10 days of Coronavirus PTO, and we only roll over 10.

We've been completely flexible with work schedules. A couple people have taken advantage of the paid FMLA leave extended by DOL so that parents can take 2 weeks of time to care for children... But that doesn't cover months that we're likely to be in this situation so it really comes down to being as flexible as possible. We also gave the Monday after mother's day off and Monday after father's day off company wide. In addition, we're doing a surprise mental health day on top of our regular PTO.

Flexible work arrangements, backup dependant care covered for 80 hours (or currently, until June), milk stork program, and I think a program to help with parenting challenges.

Ours is through Bright Horizons. They also offer elder care and out of network care (they will pay a person/company of your choice if they have no centres in their network in the area). They partner with a lot of daycares, not just bright horizon ones. They also have a network of nannies.

COVID-19 related - outstanding support provided. We have two day care centers and we extended hours and provided other concessions. We also partnered with other providers such as the YWCA.

Been passed over for promotion twice before and this year was the 3rd time. Luckily, I got it. Was in a dark space since I’m single, there’s covid and firm said “may not promote bc of covid” so went to therapy also because, single and cheated. Mentioned to coach(counselor) that I was nervous and anxious and had to take therapy. He said I should learn not to take things to heart. Ever since, started regretting mentioning about therapy. Should I have handled this a different way?

Hello, I got approached by a MassMutual agent, he showed me a plan of investing 15k per year for 15 years into a whole life insurance. His argument is that since whole life policy have cash value, I could draw money from it tax free in down years instead of 401k. And if I don't take out any money its a good tax free inheritance for my kids. Any advice/comments ?

This is probably a dumb question.... how do you figure out the % of contrition for you and tour employer’s to hit the $18.5K 401K limit? Trying to hit my limit but afraid to go over the limit.

This kind of puts things in perspective. For all the salary discussions on here, if you’re a SM or higher, you’re in the top 1-2% of the whole nation.
