20 companies offering enhanced maternity and paternity leave in 2024

3rd Apr 2024

Welcoming a new addition to the family is a significant milestone in anyone's life, and for working parents, the transition can be both exciting and daunting. This is where enhanced maternity leave policies come into play, offering crucial support and peace of mind during this time. Enhanced parental leave, often referred to as enhanced maternity and paternity leave, goes beyond the standard leave entitlements mandated by law. It gives new parents additional time off work to bond with their newborn or newly adopted child and support their family during this significant life transition
