Enhanced Paternity & Maternity Leave at Johnson & Johnson Indonesia Gives Parents More Quality Time to Bond with Their Newborn
Meeting the needs of twenty-first century families, Johnson & Johnson believes that family comes first. Johnson & Johnson’s new Global Parental Leave approach reaffirms how they want to help their employees be their best – at work and at home.
Currently, Indonesian parental leave is 3 months of paid maternity leave for female employees and two days of paternity leave during the child’s birth. Johnson & Johnson launched the enhanced Global Parental Leave Policy in August 2017, and the company continues to reinforce its commitment to employees that enables new parents to spend more quality time with children. With this new Global Parental Leave Policy, all eligible employees of the company – mothers and fathers, including adoptive parents – will now be entitled to take two months of paternity leave and three and a half months of maternity leave – both with 100 percent of company base pay during the first year to bond with a newborn or newly adopted child.
Peter Fasolo, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resource Officer at Johnson & Johnson said, “At Johnson & Johnson, we believe family comes first. Following the successful implementation of our expanded
U. S. parental leave programme in 2015, we are proud to announce a consistent approach to parental leave across the globe this year.”
