ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

New and future parents are sure to love Anheuser-Busch's new parental leave policy.

Effective immediately, salaried full-time employees are eligible for paid-time leave to take care of their children.

For maternity leave, the birth parent is eligible for up to eight weeks of leave plus an additional eight weeks of parental bonding leave for a total of 16 weeks of leave. The secondary caregiver is eligible for two weeks of leave. During the designated leave period, employee's will receive 100 percent compensation of their base salary.

“We knew it was time for a change. We believe that introducing this new policy is the right thing to do and it was important to us that we heard, and responded to, feedback from our colleagues. Our previous policy was not focused enough on this important time in our colleagues’ lives.” said Sandro Bassili, Vice President, People, Anheuser-Busch. “The more we can listen to our people and respond, the better our workplace will be for us all.”
