Kudos to Johnson and Johnson in India!
The company has rolled out an eight-week paternity leave for new and adoptive fathers during the first year. This move is taken to strengthen the bond between the child and the father. For the last six years in the company, 26 weeks of maternity leave for new mothers was already in force.
...“We think that leaves which encourage employees to be with their families can benefit organisations. They can be excellent motivational factors, increase workforce retention and promote equality and diversity at the workplace,” says Indrajeet Sengupta, head-human resources, Johnson & Johnson India.
