Cyient, a global engineering, manufacturing, and technology solutions company, has announced a 12-week gender-neutral parental leave policy across its offices, globally. With immediate effect, all Cyient employees, including birth and adoptive parents of any gender, can now avail up to 12 weeks of fully paid time off, following the birth or adoption of their child.
PNSV Narasimham, president and chief human resources officer, Cyient, hopes “This policy will help new parents spend quality time with their families.”
The new parental leave policy will make a significant difference in countries where mandated parental leave policies are insufficient for new parents or do not apply to primary and secondary caregivers.
Krishna Bodanapu, managing director and CEO, Cyient, said, “Building an inclusive culture needs inclusive policies and practices. As a parent and a member of the global tech industry, I vouch for policies that challenge gender stereotypes and celebrate diversity. “
This new gender-neutral policy is aimed at empowering all new parents at Cyient and provide them a chance to efficiently “share childcare responsibilities.”
