Transdev Australasia has implemented gender neutral parental leave.

Its 12-week employer-funded parental leave entitlements support both the primary and secondary carers, and do not limit primary caring responsibilities to the mother of the child. This is explicitly stated in the policy and the communication of the policy to employees via internal bulletins, newsletters and the MyTransdev employee app.

Employees who have taken paid parental use have also shared feedback to educate the broader team on the application and availability of the policy.

The outcomes

One-third of employees who took parental leave in the last 12 months were men.
