Vodafone’s New Policy will Allow the New Parents to Spend More time with Children
The employees of Vodafone New Zealand will benefit from the company's new policy which is intended to encourage the new parents to come back to work.
Vodafone's new maternity policy will permit their staffs who are expecting to have children, one month of additional leave.
According to the new policy, the primary caregivers who work with the company and return to their job within twelve months of child birth, will get full payment for thirty hour week for initial six months.
This new policy will give the parents of the new born an extra day to spend with their kids at home every week when the child goes through the most important stages of development.
Antony Welton, the company's human resources director said, "Our parents who are leaving the workplace are taking a lot of skill and experience and history with them but they're also coming back better equipped to work in the workplace so we get two benefits."
Russell Stanners , CEO of Vodafone said that the expectant mothers also will be given sixteen weeks pro-rata leave with full pay. This scheme will top up the Paid Parental Leave, to full pay initiated by the government. Vodafone's new policy will come into effect from 1 April, 2015.
