Determine whose endorsement you will need to make the official decision to offer paid family & medical leave. These people may include:
- The board of directors
- Head of HR / other HR managers
- Other senior executives (e.g., CEO, CFO)
- Heads of business units
- Employee benefits committee members
If multiple leaders/groups must be convinced, determine in what order you will approach them and consider who will be useful to have on board first to help sway others.
