Description:

 

A major limb of an inclusive and diverse workplace movement is the drive towards creating policies that encourage more women to enter and continue to be a part of the workforce. Over the years, some companies have been taking initiatives to give their employees maternity benefits beyond what has been mandated by law. While there are challenges ahead, our findings in this report show reason to be optimistic as well. The measures taken by some employers to create well-thought out policies and government proposals in the pipeline are a testament to the increasing importance of maternity benefit as a workplace policy.
