Enabling the Future of Work | Silicon Valley Business Roundtable + Lunch

Silicon Valley has established itself as a standout leader in the national movement around paid family and medical leave adoption. The region’s powerful influence extends beyond industry lines, driving the benefit offerings of businesses of all sizes across the United States. As a Silicon Valley business leader, your guidance is critical as we explore how the region can reach beyond paid leave to lead the widespread adoption of family-friendly workplace policies, such as childcare and care giving. Benefits that, when employed together, can close pay gaps, right inequities, and lead to increased economic mobility for all people.

Please join Panorama, in partnership the Bay Area Council and Silicon Valley Community Foundation, for a roundtable and panel discussion in San Francisco on how Silicon Valley leaders can continue to lead the nation on changing the way businesses support American workers.

Understanding the Business Impacts of Paid Family and Medical Leave: A New Resource for U.S. Business Leaders

Understanding the Business Impacts of Paid Family and Medical Leave: A New Resource for U.S. Business Leaders

One of the biggest upfront barriers to the broad adoption of paid family and medical leave (PFML) is cost. And, while the benefits of PFML are often cited in relation to improving the security and health of workers and contribution to the economy, its impact on the bottom lines of businesses is often overlooked.

Join Panorama, an action tank working to further paid leave adoption in the private sector, for an online discussion and Q&A with the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC), and Emily Hall Warren, director of administration at W.S. Badger Company on how, and why, the returns from paid family and medical leave vary across companies. The conversation will center around Panorama’s newest resource for U.S. business leaders, “Understanding the Business Impacts of Paid Family and Medical Leave.”

Based on publicly available data outlining investments and returns, Panorama created the report, and a framework, to help companies understand the impact of their paid family and medical leave policies. This is a starting point from which companies can better understand, evaluate, and measure the impacts of their policies to make strategic decisions for both their workforce and bottom line. The full report will be published in mid-September.

The Business Impact of Paid Leave: An Interactive Workshop

The Business Impact of Paid Leave: An Interactive Workshop

We’re excited to host a preconference workshop on the business impact of paid leave at the Disability Management Employer Coalition’s Annual Conference in Austin on Aug. 6.

There is currently no standard approach to calculating the business value, health impacts, or general return on investment of paid leave. And yet, we know a healthier workforce impacts measurable business areas such as employee performance, productivity, and company profitability. The Paid Leave Project spent the past year conducting research on the drivers, barriers, and emerging trends of voluntary adoption of paid leave by the largest corporations across the United States. Employers want more data to strengthen the business case for paid leave. It’s time we work together to transform workforce health from a line-item cost to a source of business value.

Thank you to our partners at Limeade, LeaveLogic, and HCMI for joining us as we explore this topic and potential tactics to measure the business impact of paid leave.

How Venture Investment and Start-Ups can Shape the Future of Work

How Venture Investment and Start-Ups can Shape the Future of Work

Seattle has long inspired entrepreneurs and investors who set out to change the city, the country, and even the world. While our companies are leading on innovation, we are not leading on leave.

Despite our progressive policies, women in Washington are still leaving the workforce following childbirth. Men and women both often find themselves stuck as eldercare responsibilities arise, and people of color are experiencing some of the largest wealth and opportunity divides in the region.

Please join Panorama and Founders Live for a roundtable discussion with local venture capitalists, including Dave Parker with Seven Peaks Ventures, Sarah Bird, CEO of Moz, Jana Kleitsch, CEO of Wanderlust Society, and start-up leaders around how we can work together to address these gaps, and ensure that Washington-based companies create an environment where all workers thrive. The Washington Employment Security Department, administrators of Washington's upcoming Paid Family and Medical Leave Program, will also be available for questions.
