In May 2018 we launched a new Global Parental Standard in all of the countries where we operate to provide caregivers with the leave they need to bond with their new children and ease the transition back to work. All primary caregivers — male and female — receive a minimum of 16 weeks of time off at 100% pay. Secondary caregivers receive a minimum of two weeks of time off at 100% pay. This new Standard now exceeds local regulatory requirements in over half of the countries where we operate.
