Across all our plants and offices, we’re giving new mothers and fathers, including same-sex, surrogate, and adoptive parents, 24 weeks of paid parental leave. So they have time for what matters most.
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.”Isabelle Chatila
Network Development Manager, Volvo Car Australia
When everyone takes parental leave, we believe the gender gap narrows and all parents, especially women, can move forward in their career.
“Now I feel that working is similar to parenting: we start from scratch and learn new things, we share responsibilities and support each other.”Jamie Ji
Sr. Electrical Maintenance Technician, Volvo Car China
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.
“This is more than a new parental leave policy for our employees – it is the embodiment of our company culture and values.”Hanna Fager
Head of Corporate Functions, Volvo Cars
