At Adafruit, we do our best to provide all of our team members with a benefits package that helps them maintain a good work-life balance. Our current package includes great health care, 401k, commuter tax benefits, paid time off for charity, paid holidays, paid family leave, paid vacation, and free snacks and beverages.
Our most recent addition that we are very excited to provide is a Mother’s Room. It’s a comfortable, private and secure space only accessible to new nursing moms. The space includes:
couch, ottoman, rug, small desk and lamps to create a comfy and pleasing space inside the Adafruit factory
private refrigerator and sink
beverages and snacks provided by Adafruit
storage for mothers’ personal belongings
We will continue to add to the space as we get feedback from the new moms.
Thanks to the Adafruit team members who were instrumental in building and planning out this space. It means a great deal! 🙂
