Take The Paid Leave Pledge
Uniting Businesses Leading on Leave
Businesses play a critical role in meeting the needs of a changing workforce by providing programs that support workers and their families.
To improve and expand worker-centric programs across the United States, Panorama is inviting companies to publicly share data on the impact of their paid family and medical leave (PFML) programs. The Paid Leave Pledge will improve the evidence-base around the impact of PFML programs on businesses and employees, and highlight businesses who know the value of doing well by doing good.
The project will be supported by data and analysis from JUST Capital, an independent nonprofit organization that ranks corporations on the priorities and values of the American public. JUST Capital’s polling indicates that providing paid leave is a core component of being a just employer.
We invite you to join us in this movement as we highlight businesses who champion paid leave.

Panorama, a Seattle-based action tank, works alongside partners to drive action on major social issues.
With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Panorama is developing a framework for understanding the ROI of paid leave, leading to meaningful opportunities to highlight best practices through business roundtables, publications and multi-stakeholder convenings. This is an expansion of the team’s initial work with U.S. companies to raise awareness of the benefits of a comprehensive paid leave program for both employers and employees.
