Deloitte is committed to supporting our people and we recognise the importance of flexibility. Whether it be to support family, volunteer, study, pursue sporting or other personal goals – the reason for wanting to work flexibly is different for each of us and likely to change as our personal circumstances do. Our ‘Lifestyle leave’ policy* helps support our people achieve balance in their lives by allowing people to purchase additional annual leave of up to 12 weeks a year to spend more time on the things important to them outside of work.
We appreciate the key to a family friendly workplace is a modern parental leave policy* which recognised the realities of parenting today and encourages and supports shared care, along with flexibility. This is in addition to our paid primary caregiver leave of 14 weeks. We aim to foster a more inclusive workplace by providing a generous paid partner leave entitlement of 8 weeks across a 2 year period so both parents have the opportunity to take time off with the arrival of child into the family. The policy recognises the role that the firm has to play, along with government and wider society, in reducing potential barriers to shared care.
