MetLife Founding Sponsor of Working Mother’s 2018 Best Companies for Dads

There is a growing recognition that there are different ways in which families are constructed and how they operate.  To that end, MetLife initiated a program in the last few years to help defray some of the legal and non-medical costs of surrogacy.  We have also expanded paternity leave, and seen an increase in fathers taking that time.  From my own experience, I can say that I was one of the first officers to take a paternity leave as a primary care giver and received excellent support from the Company and my colleagues throughout that experience.  And I am preparing to take a similar leave in the next few months as my husband and I expect our second son. -Jonathan A. Damon, Associate General Counsel, MetLife
