It’s important we practice what we preach. Our Motherboard Charter asks businesses to pledge change and the time had come for us to review our own maternity and paternity leave, ensuring we provide support for employees looking to start or extend their families.
Our maternity leave policy now pays at a full rate of average earnings for the first 6 weeks, followed by the employee’s full basic salary for the following 20 weeks.
Our paternity leave policy allows parents to take an additional two weeks of leave on full pay.
We are committed to reviewing our policies. Should a circumstance of adoption, fostering and / or shared mother or fatherhood arise that sits outside of our current policy, we will adapt it accordingly.
