Diageo today announces that it is beginning a global roll-out of an ambitious new family leave policy applicable to employees across its business, as part of its leading work to create a fully inclusive and diverse workforce. The business hopes the policy will support employees to focus on the joy of raising a young family, while continuing to thrive at work, and ensuring women and men are supported to have time with their new baby regardless of where they live and work.
The new global policy offers female employees in all markets a minimum of 26 weeks of fully paid maternity leave.
Diageo is also setting a global minimum standard of four weeks paternity leave on full rate of pay in all markets, with a significant number of Diageo's businesses moving to 26 weeks fully paid paternity leave including North America, Thailand, Philippines, Singapore, Spain, Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Russia, Colombia, Venezuela, and Australia amongst others.
