There are many businesses that like to talk about family friendly employment arrangements.
There are less businesses that actually have family friendly employment arrangements.
There are even less businesses that lobby the Government to change the system to make it easier for working parents.
So, it’s nice to share a good news story about a business that walks the talk across the board when it comes to helping employees manage their work/life balance.
Thrive PR is one of Australia’s leading independent public relations agencies, and one of those businesses committed to supporting parents.
Thrive’s family friendly employment arrangements include, two months paid parental leave at full pay in addition to the government’s 18 week paid parental leave scheme, access to paid childcare funding to cover childcare costs up to $150 per day, and parking near premise for mums-to-be in their third trimester of pregnancy.
“Thrive is a workplace that recognises the importance of working parents. We are doing everything possible from a culture and financial perspective to get more women returning to rewarding careers at Thrive and to help them transition back into the workplace,” Thrive founder, MD and working mother, Leilani Abels said.
