Also under this family leave program, mothers who give birth to a child are eligible for up to six months of paid time off when factoring in short-term disability for childbirth.
Shifting family structures and needs go beyond just the requirements for new parents welcoming a child. “Our Talent strategy is centered around our ability to create a leadership culture that is focused on the development and well-being of our professionals,” said Mike Preston, Chief Talent Officer, Deloitte LLP. “Leading-edge programs for our people, reinforced by daily interactions and conversations at the team level, instill a culture of support and well-being.”
What Deloitte is learning from its people is echoed in the external marketplace. In a recent pulse survey of U.S. workers, Deloitte found that 88 percent of the respondents would value a broader paid leave policy to include family care beyond parental leave.
Deloitte has 78,642 employees in the U.S., up over 8,000 from the previous year.
