Parents & Carers at Deloitte Australia
We recognise that families come in all shapes and sizes and that we each define our family differently – whether it be a partner (including same-sex and de facto), a parent, child, sibling, friend or pet, our policies are inclusive and we aim to support different life stages.
Parents at work
We partner with Parents at work, a membership-based organisation providing work and family education and policy advisory services to workplaces and their people.
Through Parents at Work, our people have access to a suite of tools and resources and we provide all our parents with access to three external one-on-one coaching sessions to be used at a time that suits them before, during or after their return from parental leave.
Progressive Parental Leave Policy
At Deloitte, we aim to provide flexibility and choice in how our people care for their children. Our market-leading policy provides 18 weeks of paid leave inclusive of all types of families including birth, adoptive, surrogate, foster and same-sex parents. This can be taken over the first 36 months after the arrival of a child in three flexible ways, including on a part-time weekly basis. We continue to pay superannuation contributions while taking unpaid parental leave and provide our people with the option to take leave at the same time as their partner.
