    This big auto, home and life insurer joined several other big firms last year by raising the hourly pay to $15/hour from $10.50 —benefitting approximately 900 workers—at a total investment of $2.1 million. With nearly 34,000 employees at 248 sites, the Columbus, Ohio-based firm provides expectant mothers with seven fully-paid days off prior to their due date, with up to 8 weeks, and this year added 7 additional “baby bonding” days to the end of their maternity leave. The company also increased paid-time-off for new dads and domestic partners, from two to seven days. Adoption assistance has also been upped from $3,000 to $6,000.
