Burberry launches new parental leave policy
Burberry is to offer all employees a fully paid 18 weeks of parental leave and the chance to work a 30-hour week at full pay for a further four weeks on their return to work.
Due to take effect from 1 April 2020, the move builds on Burberry’s existing maternity, paternity, adoption and partner leave commitments and will apply to all employees across the globe who have worked for the business for at least 12 months.
Erica Bourne, Burberry chief people officer, said: “We’re proud to have an inclusive culture and now a policy which equalises our approach in all markets, enabling new parents to take time with their families and phase their return to work. It reflects our commitment to building a strong pipeline of talent, so that all colleagues are supported to develop their careers here at Burberry.”
