The program, created by the company’s Women@Dine Team Member Resource Group, offers new parents (birthing and non-birthing) the option to work remotely up to 90 consecutive calendar days after returning from paid leave, easing their transition back to either a hybrid or full-time office schedule. Effective immediately, corporate team members supporting Dine and its brands across Restaurant Support Centers (RSCs) in California, Texas, and Kansas are eligible for this new benefit.
“We learned during the pandemic the convenience that working from home provides, especially when welcoming a new child into the world,” said Dine Brands Chief People Officer, Sarah Cannon-Foster. “By providing the option to work remotely before returning to the RSC, it’s our aim that team members will feel empowered to take their paid leave, knowing they will have the grace upon return to adjust and establish their new routines and family dynamics. We also hope this will contribute to improved physical and mental health outcomes for our team members.”
Other family-focused benefits offered to Dine Brands corporate team members include:
- 12 weeks of fully paid maternity leave (including baby bonding time) for birthing parents
- 6 weeks of fully paid baby bonding time for non-birthing parents
- Adoption assistance of up to $4,000 per adoption, or $6,000 if adopting a special needs child
- Family planning and fertility assistance
Dine Brands remains committed to supporting its corporate team members and their families every step of the way by offering flexible work schedules, half-day Fridays, tuition reimbursement, pet insurance, wellness and work-life resources, dining benefits, and competitive standard benefits, such as dental and vision coverage, employee assistance programs, 401(k) retirement plans, and more.
