B2B digital marketplace – Solv – launched a paternity leave program for its employees, wherein employees can avail 4 weeks of paternity leave on the birth of their child. The new program is part of Solv’s effort to provide more time for fathers to bond with their new-born children and support their partner by sharing childcare responsibilities. This gender-neutral caregiving policy is also part of a wider set of people policies focused on actively promoting physical, emotional and mental well-being of not just Solv’s employees but also their families.
With the new paternity leave program, employees can avail 4 weeks of leave on the birth of a child. The leave can be availed anytime within 1 year, in whole or in parts, allowing fathers to spend much needed time with their child and share the joys of childcare with their partner. Also, Solv’s adoption leave policy has always been gender-neutral, allowing for 12 weeks of leave at a continuous stretch, for the primary caregiver in the case of an adopted child.
