Vodafone Albania support towards the female employees in maternity leave.
Vodafone Albania aims to make the decision of every female employee to become mother, as easy a decision and as positive an experience as possible. Gender balance is an important strategic agenda for Vodafone Albania. Wanting to emphasize that Vodafone Albania intends to be a destination employer for women, the principles herein depicted apply to all current and potential female employees.
Vodafone Albania objective is that women join, stay and be at their best in Vodafone during all stages of their career and life.
Vodafone also announced the outcome of analysis commissioned from KPMG* which indicates that global businesses could save up to an estimated $19 billion annually through the provision of 16 weeks of fully paid maternity leave. KPMG estimated that:
- recruiting and training new employees to replace women who do not stay in the workforce after having a baby costs global businesses $47 billion every year;
- offering women 16 weeks of fully paid maternity leave rather than the statutory minimum would cost businesses an additional $28 billion a year; and
- if businesses were able to retain more women in the workforce after their maternity leave, they could save up to $19 billion a year and would retain the knowledge and experience of these women with positive consequences for productivity and effectiveness.
- offering mothers a global return-to-work policy equivalent to a four-day week at full pay for their first six months back to work after maternity leave could save working mothers a cumulative $14 billion in childcare for their new babies; and
- a four-day week would enable mothers to spend a cumulative 608 million additional days with their newborn babies.
"Women account for 35% of our employees worldwide but only 21% of our international senior leadership team. We believe our new maternity policy will play an important role in helping to bridge that gap. Supporting working mothers at all levels of our organisation will ultimately result in better decisions, a better culture and a deeper understanding of our customers’ needs."
