At Ueno, we believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride. That sort of thing.
That's just one of the reasons we've just joined Pledge Parental Leave as a partner.
Taking the pledge means that when the stork visits one of us, like our COO Tawny up there, we guarantee things like paid three months paid leave for the primary caregiver, uninterrupted medical insurance coverage for parents, and a six-month guarantee that your job, or a similar one, will be there when you return.
Seems pretty common sense to us.
A bunch of great companies have taken the pledge already, and we'd love to see more join.
