Updating Our Parental Leave

Happy New Year to our EA community!

Welcoming a new family member is one of the most exciting times for our employees. As a mother, I know firsthand how important it is to have ample time to bond with your new child. That’s why I’m very pleased to share that we’ve updated our parental leave policies for the US to allow for additional paid time away for our employees who are expanding their families.

For employees who have been at EA for a year or more, we now offer 10 weeks of paid parental leave for mothers, fathers and adoptive parents. For birth mothers who combine this with disability leave, they can now take up to six months of paid leave depending on the length of disability. Research shows that paid leave improves employee morale, retention and most importantly, has significant benefits for family health and wellness. At EA, we want to create a culture that inspires you to do the best work of your career, but we know you can only do that by having the flexibility and support to balance your career and personal life.

With over 30 locations around the world, our benefits vary by location and other factors. If you're interested in joining the team and learning more about the benefits we offer, visit careers.ea.com.
