Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield – Finalist 2018, My Family Care Best for Mothers Award
Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield offers three months’ full pay and three months’ half pay to mothers on maternity or adoption leave.
Before and after leave, mothers benefit from external coaching sessions. When they return, a Family Buddy – another employee who is already a working parent – helps with practical and emotional issues.
Some are offered places on ‘women in science and engineering’ returner programmes.
All returning mothers who requested flexible working had their request approved. The retention rate for mothers after one year is 71 per cent.
