Fidelity International Announces Family Care Leave Policy

Fidelity International has announced a 'Family Care Leave’ policy for its employees.


Under the initiative, all employees will have access to at-least five paid days of leave* per calendar year to look after family members in need of care.


The policy is effective from March 1, 2021 and will allow staff to take time off for a variety of reasons including; caring for elderly parents, looking after a sick or disabled family member or to manage unexpected events such as nursery closures.


Upasna Nischal, Head of HR India, Fidelity International said, "The wellbeing of our employees is of paramount importance to us and being compassionate is one of our core behaviours. Based on multiple pulse surveys conducted over the last several months, we gathered that many of our colleagues needed support to balance their work and family care responsibilities."


"The Family Care Leave introduced for employees is aimed at supporting them during those critical times when they need to attend to their elderly parents care for young children or look after a sick family member. We believe that this initiative will also help our colleague’s wellbeing as it would help alleviate stress that they may be facing due to competing work and family care responsibilities," she added.
