At Aronson, people first is how we have always operated.
When you are in the people business like we are, what’s good for people is good for business. As we continue to move forward with this mission as our north star, we have decided to make several enhancements to our employee benefits, for our people and their families.
Effective January 1, 2022, we will be implementing Flexible Time Off (FTO), whereby team members can simply take time off as needed. We hope this increased flexibility will allow our team members to spend more time with friends and family, and continue to perform their jobs in a way that fits their lifestyles.
In 2021, we also expanded our parental leave policy. All full-time, benefit-eligible team members are eligible to receive 11 weeks of paid parental leave that can be used anytime during the six-month period of the birth or adoption date. Birthmothers receive an extra two weeks, totaling up to 13 weeks of leave! We are excited to be able to support our Aronson families, and we hope this additional time off gives new parents the flexibility they need during those exciting first few months.
Additionally, in October we updated our short term disability policy, which is now entirely firm funded.
For more details regarding specific benefits enhancements, please contact the Aronson People team.
We hope that the enhancements we have made and will continue to make to our benefits will provide our employees with the flexibility they need to maintain a healthy work life balance.
In addition to implementing Flexible Time Off, our firm is leading the way in workplace culture with our Flexibility First initiative. We have been and will continue to encourage team members to work from wherever suits their lifestyle- whether that’s at home, in the office, or a mix.
We are also making a concerted effort to hire without borders, meaning that our talent pool has now expanded across the country, and we are able to find the best and brightest people to fill open roles.
With this increased emphasis on flexibility, we hope that our team members continue to see Aronson as a wonderful place to work. If you are interested in joining our team, please visit our Careers page.
