Compassionate leave: We try our best to help our employees balance their work life with their personal/family life. There may be times when you need to care for another, have a family emergency that you weren’t expecting, or a bereavement. Compassionate leave is in place to use in these situations and covers up to 5 paid days per calendar year.
‘Me days’: 3 ‘me days’ per year to help them manage life — this can be used for life admin, when the world becomes a little too much, or for errands like vet visits.
Volunteering day off: All full-time, active employees are provided 8 hours of paid Volunteer Time on an annual basis.
Taking care of your family
Parental leave — Family comes first and we don’t want people to miss out on any of the special, important moments.
So we offer:
- 18 fully paid weeks of parental leave (both maternity and paternity) for birth or adoption, if you’ve been at Wise for 1+ year at the due date or adoption date. This applies regardless of gender, or your partner’s parental leave policies.
- 10 days leave on full pay for any Wisers affected by pregnancy loss, including those who are partners or surrogate mothers.
Childcare leave: If you’ve been with us for 3 months and have children below 7 years old, you’ll be eligible for 6 days childcare leave. Parents with children aged between 7-12 years old are eligible to 2 days.
A home away from home
Food and drinks: To start your day we’ll provide you with breakfast every day which offers coffee, tea, toast, cereals and more to get your brain cells up and running. When you’re craving a snack, you can also find a variety of treats and drinks in our kitchen. Once a week we also have team lunch.
Games area: Beat your colleagues with your table tennis and football skills or just relax on our console games.
Social events and paid company trip: We arrange various local company events throughout the year, as well as coming together for larger gatherings with our colleagues around the world, for example, Mission Days. Every year, we take all our employees on a paid company trip. The goal is to bring everyone together, have fun, align on our goals and celebrate our mission. Unfortunately the global pandemic has put our loved tradition on hold, but we’re definitely bringing it back when we can. Until then, we’re connecting locally, where and in ways we can.
