Volvo Paid Parental Leave. It's Time. 

To strengthen family bonds across the globe, while strengthening Volvo Cars as a company.

Across all our plants and offices, we’re giving new mothers and fathers, including same-sex, surrogate, adoptive and single parents, 24 weeks of paid parental leave. So they have time for what matters most.

Benefits for children

Studies show that paid parental leave has positive lasting effects on children’s health.

I strongly feel that paid parental leave improves maternal and infant health, including physical health and well-being. There is no greater gift you can give a parent.

Benefits for parents

When everyone takes parental leave, we believe the gender gap narrows and all parents, especially women, can move forward in their career without worrying about traditional gender roles.

Now I feel that working is similar to parenting: we start from scratch and learn new things, we share responsibilities and support each other.

Benefits for Volvo Cars

We believe a diverse and inclusive workforce will drive the best innovation, increase performance and strengthen our business – paid parental leave helps us achieve this by becoming the first choice for all kinds of parents.

This is more than a new parental leave policy for our employees – it is the embodiment of our company culture and values.
