FCB Group introduces paid parental leave programAugust 20, 2021
FCB Group is pleased to announce that the company recently launched its paid parental leave program that came into effect on 1 June 2021.
The company is offering up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave for primary caregivers in addition to the unpaid parental leave that is available under the National Employment Standards. This initiative is for full-time and part-time employees with a minimum of 24 months of continuous service.
HR Manager, Radhika Rahul spoke about the new initiative and said, “Having a parental leave program is a win-win situation for our employees and business. It can alleviate additional pressures on new parents and allows staff to focus on their most important job – their new family member.
“Our employees are our most important asset, and they bring immense value to our business and our clients’ businesses. Becoming a parent is a life-changing event and we want to be able to support our employees as much as we can.”
Being family-friendly is weaved into FCB Group’s fabric; the company was founded by a brother and sister team, Campbell Fisher and Jessica Fisher over 25 years ago. Rahul says this new program enhances existing employee benefits and creates a more inclusive culture for its staff.
The company regularly conducts employee engagement surveys which have proven to be a crucial step in introducing this new initiative.
“The feedback from our staff was instrumental in understanding how we can implement a paid parental leave program effectively. Open communication with our team helps us to steer policy decisions impacting our employees’ lives.
“Giving our people a voice also helps us to align our new company values system with our cultural standards, defining what it means to be a forward-thinking employer of choice,” Rahul said.
FCB Group has been awarded Employer of Choice Award for three years running.
