Denise Young Smith, Apple's head of human resources, sent out a memo to employees on Thursday outlining the new additions, Fortune reported. Here's a brief overview of which perks have been updated:
- Longer parental leave
- Education reimbursements for all classes taken by employees
- Subsidized student loan refinancing
- A broader donation-matching program
- Full acceleration of stock in the event of an employee's death
She's also making an effort to roll out benefits to hourly employees, too — not just salaried members of the Apple workforce.
As part of the new benefits, expectant mothers can now take up to four weeks before a delivery and 14 weeks after. Non-birth parents now get six weeks of leave.
The new donation-matching program gives Apple employees the opportunity to receive $25 per hour of nonprofit work.
This is all in addition to the other benefits that already exist at Apple, including the "wellness center" located at the company's Cupertino headquarters. There are also a ton of other reasons employees have said they love working at Apple other than the technical benefits, such as the company's excellent work environment, the provided transportation, and even the food on campus.
