The Straits Times article on Firms offering more leave for new mums
The article mentioned how some of the companies in Singapore offer strong benefits for working and pregnant mums, so that they will be able to look after their needs and spend more time taking care of their little ones.
While it would be more difficult for smaller companies to afford such leave packages, 3E Accounting have their own ways of giving busy parents the break they need.
Local small and medium-sized enterprise 3E Accounting will be giving six weeks of unpaid infant-care leave on top of the Government’s maternity, adoption and paternity leave, starting next month, said its managing director Lawrence Chai.
The firm’s flexible working hours have also attracted female staff, who account for 22 of its 24-strong headcount.
Mr Chai said: “Work-life balance is really important. We want to look at social responsibility as well, not just making money.”
Becoming a new parent is a huge undertaking, and implementing these policies will be beneficial for the employee.
Achieving a work life balance is important to success, employee’s well-being and productivity.
