Goldman Sachs, known for its hard-working bankers, is becoming a family friendly firm.
The Wall Street giant is expanding its parental leave policy, offering new fathers and other "non-primary caregivers" more paid time off when they have a baby.
As of Friday, Goldman is offering four weeks off, with pay, to employees following the birth or legal adoption of a child, according to an internal announcement. It previously offered them two weeks off.
Goldman ( currently offers 16 weeks of paid maternity leave for employees in the United States. In 2012, the company began offering parents who adopt a child the same amount of time off. One year later it extended the benefit to parents who use a surrogate. )
The new time off policy will also apply to partners in same-sex couples, according to a spokeswoman.
The change is part of "the firm's ongoing commitment to working families," Goldman's top human resources executive, Edith Cooper, wrote in a memo to employes.
