Diageo to Offer Equal Parental Leave to UK Employees

Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Diageo have offered to provide equal parental leave to their male and female UK workers and will all be eligible for 52 weeks leave, 26 being full pay.  This covers all of Diageo’s 4,500 UK employers, including 3,100 Scotland.

This policy is a start of a new journey to create a “fully inclusive and diverse” workforce where talent is not only retained but also nurtured.

A study found that 10% of employers offer more than the statutory period of a two week paid leave last year and Diageo is hoping to change that.
