Expanding a family is an exciting time. No matter how a child is welcomed child into a family, Capgemini UK wants to ensure its people and their families are supported on this journey.

Capgemini has significantly refreshed its family friendly policies, which are for all UK employees, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, race or religion.

Capgemini has replaced individual policies for maternity, paternity, adoption, surrogacy, and shared parental leave, with two brand new inclusive policies, which encompass its previous five individual family policies.

Providing all parents with equal leave

The two new policies, Primary Parent Family Leave and Partner Family Leave, are progressive, going above and beyond previous entitlements providing all parents with equal parental leave, no matter how a child has entered your family.

Parents welcoming a child into their family will now be eligible for up to 52 weeks leave, regardless of whether they are the primary caregiver or the partner. Primary caregivers will also be eligible for up to 26 weeks paid leave at 100% of their average earnings, and those partners wishing to take Shared Parental Leave will be eligible for up to 24 weeks paid leave at 100% of their average earnings in addition to taking paid partner leave.

Joining Capgemini's suite of existing policies 

These two new policies join Capgemini's suite of existing policies regarding family matters which include:

  • Pregnancy/Baby Loss Support
  • Fertility Assistance
  • Compassionate & Bereavement Leave
  • Menopause Support
