In an effort to continually improve the workplace environment for all Employee-Owners, the Pelican Wire leadership team recently announced a new, comprehensive ‘Paid Family Leave’ benefit. This expanded paid-leave benefit includes maternity/paternity leave and leave for primary caregivers of immediate family members with a serious health condition requiring full-time care.

Provided at no cost to the employee-owner, this benefit expands beyond Short-Term Disability, which only provides coverage for situations involving a serious health condition of the employee. Amy Foster, Pelican Wire HR Director, says “We are proud to be on the leading-edge of such critical-need benefits. As paid family leave is poised to become the new standard for employers, we want to serve our employee-owners with every possible advantage. In both our Naples, Florida and Loveland, Colorado facilities, we have the opportunity to set a higher standard. Our commitment toward offering a progressive paid family leave policy is in alignment with our ‘WIRED Core Values’, in which ‘I’ represents ‘Innovation’.
