Introducing our enhanced maternity leave
We are proud to introduce an industry leading maternity and adoption leave policy that will see new parents receive full pay for 21 weeks.
The policy, which takes effect from 1 June 2023, demonstrates the values we hold in listening and supporting our people in providing family-friendly policies that support career development and the creation of our future leaders.
From 1 June, all qualifying people in our firm will be offered an enhanced maternity and adoption leave policy that includes 21 weeks on full pay, followed by 18 weeks at the statutory minimum (currently £172.48 a week), plus a further 13 weeks unpaid.
The policy also allows shared parental and adoption leave alongside paternity leave. This follows on from us achieving B Corp™ status in March 2023, recognising the need to balance profits with purpose.
Sharn Manku, HR Director at Kreston Reeves, said: “Kreston Reeves is a purpose-driven firm, guiding our clients, colleagues and communities to a brighter future. It has an ever-growing female workforce, with over half of its workforce female. We look to support our staff in every way we can, including the development of tomorrow’s leadership teams.”
“We listen to our staff and improved family friendly policies have been regularly raised in our staff-led forums. This policy is a practical demonstration of our commitment to our talented people, that sits alongside our values, our B Corp™ status, and our ESG goals.”
“It is just one of the many initiatives Kreston Reeves will introduce over the next 12 months.”
