 Facebook CEO Post On Paternity Leave Will Inspire you

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Friday took to the social networking site to announce that he will be taking two months during the birth of his second daughter. “Our new daughter is coming soon, and I’m planning to take two months of paternity leave again” the  Chief Executive said. Zuckerberg did something similar back in 2015, when the couple welcomed their first daughter, Max. However, this time he has added that he will be taking a month off after the birth and will later take an off in December.

He also made a reference to the fact that Facebook offers four months of paternity leave. The company allows its US employees to take up to four months of paid parental leave which they can take throughout the year. “We offer four months of maternity and paternity leave because studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns, it’s good for the entire family,” he said in his post.

It is yet to be determined on how the giant will manage its leadership in Zuckerberg’s absence.

Here’s the complete post:

When Max was born, I took two months of paternity leave. I will always be grateful I could spend so much time with her in the first months of her life.

Our new daughter is coming soon, and I’m planning to take two months of paternity leave again. This time, I’m going to take advantage of Facebook’s option to take leave in parts. I’ll take a month off to be with Priscilla and the girls at the beginning, and then we’ll spend the whole month of December together as well. I’m looking forward to bonding with our new little one and taking Max on adventures.

At Facebook, we offer four months of maternity and paternity leave because studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns, it’s good for the entire family. And I’m pretty sure the office will still be standing when I get back.
