2018 Publication – Coming Soon

Covering maternity, paternity, and adoption leave policies, and related return to work and support arrangements.

This publication focuses on leave benefits provided to parents around the world. It includes information related to whether companies are providing the statutory minimums or going above and beyond to provide additional time off and/or pay to their employees, as well as information on support programs offered to help an employee prepare for an extended leave and then transition smoothly when they return from leave. The statutory leave requirements for each market are included, along with typical market practice.

Over the past few years, parental leave policies have experienced a shift as companies and governments have made adjustments to address changing demographics and societal norms, as well as the need to find ways, beyond compensation, to attract and retain skilled workers.

How much paid time-off do employees receive for maternity, paternity, adoption, and family caregiver leave in different countries?

The 2018 edition of Global Findings will be available in September. It will highlight typical practice around the world, including information on additional pay or leave provided when benefit programs exceed the statutory requirements. In addition to the Global Findings edition, reports with country-specific details will be available for select markets around the world. Ensure you have the most up-to-date information on how companies are addressing this globally hot topic!
