Yahoo! is offering a generous new package of benefits for new parents, including 16 weeks paid leave and a $500 package to pay for house-cleaning, groceries, babysitting and other necessities for new moms.

The new offer comes just weeks after new CEO Marisa Mayer shocked employees by ending telecommuting at the Internet giant, NBC reports.

Under the new policy, new fathers get eight weeks paternity leave.

“To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration will be important, so we need to be working side-by-side. That is why it is critical that we are all present in our offices,” according to an internal memo published by the Huffington Post.

Mayer became the face of the working mother when she was hired at Yahoo! last year when she was five months pregnant. She gave birth to her first child in September — and only took two weeks leave.

The increased benefits put Yahoo! In line with other Internet companies, Facebook and Google.
