14x increase in paternity leave since Aviva introduced equal parenting leave
The average number of paternity days taken by men at Aviva UK has increased by more than 14 times since the policy was introduced.
Since November 2017, almost every new dad employed by the insurer in the UK has opted to take more than the statutory two weeks of paid paternity leave. Two thirds (67%) of eligible fathers chose to take six months off work2 with their new arrivals and 95% took more than a fortnight. In the UK, around 500 colleagues have used the policy, including more than 220 men.
Parents employed by Aviva are eligible to the same amount of paid and unpaid time off, regardless of gender, sexual orientation or how they became a parent (birth, adoption or surrogacy). Under the policy, all UK employees are able to take 12 months of leave when a new child arrives, including 26 weeks at full basic pay.
