member spotlight: kkr

Posted In:

Congratulations to KKR, the global investment firm which recently celebrated their 40th anniversary. In 1976, their vision was to create a firm with a culture that rewarded collaboration and teamwork, a genuine partnership. “Our greatest asset is – and always will be – our people” say co-founders and co-CEOs Henry Kravis and George Roberts.

True to their statement, KKR has implemented a series of initiatives designed to support their hard-working parents, including: extending paid leave for primary caregivers (male or female) from 12 to 16 weeks, implementing a firm-paid Childcare Travel Program to provide employees the option of bringing their infant and childcare provider on essential business-related travel within their infant’s first year, offering executives parental leave transition support for transitioning to or from parental leave, and introducing on-site wellness programs.

KKR is also proud to be a founding member of the Working Parents Support Coalition, a group of corporations committed to enacting policies that support working parents and will improve health, development and economic outcomes. Since becoming a founding member, KKR has continued to expand adoption reimbursement benefits to all employees, improved lactation support and resources for nursing mothers, introduced firm-paid breast milk shipping during business travel, implemented coverage for gender reassignment surgery, and maintained unlimited benefits for fertility treatments.
