It is our constant endeavour to support our women in various phases of their life, especially during maternity and to enable them through this transition our MomEY range of initiatives creates a strong support system for working mothers at EY. Our intervention around providing transition support to mothers returning to work after maternity not only enhances job satisfaction but also supports them in meeting their personal/work-life integration, needs and preferences. One such initiative under ‘MomEY’, guarantees a job for our working mothers, who take a career break for maternity or childcare, within 5 years of leaving the company without any formal interview process. Another intervention - Maternity Coaching and transition support program ensures that women have a smooth transition into worklife from maternity and career break.
To provide time to fathers to welcome their young ones, we extend paternity leave to all our employees.
The on- site free of cost day care facility allows our working parents to bring their newborns and attendants to work.
At EY, each one of us respects our commitment to diversity; the need to take onus for our conduct and treat everyone respectfully and professionally in the workplace; our assurance of equalemployment opportunity; and our prohibition of racial and sexual harassment.
