In October 2023, our COO, Tom Jewell embarked on three months of parental leave with full pay.
Why this matters:
👉 Unleashed's parental leave is gender-neutral, promoting equality + normalising inclusivity
👉 Our 'Parenternity' policy gives families flexibility to choose what's best for them
👉 It's a modern policy reflecting the times we live in
👉 Our focus is on the best interests of the child (this policy draws inspiration from the UN and UNICEF)
By open-sourcing this policy template, we hope to help + aim to nudge things in the right direction. We urge companies to ask themselves, what more could you be doing to normalise inclusivity, and be family-first?
Why? Well, in Tom's own words, because "a thriving business requires thriving people."
