Urban Ladder Now Lets Women Employees Avail 6 Months Of Maternity Leave

Additionally, employees have the option to avail additional three months of part-time work (Five hours) at an equivalent pay basis or additional three months of unpaid leave.

Urban Ladder has announced twenty-six weeks (six months) of maternity leave, from thirteen weeks, for its full-time women employees.

Additionally, employees have the option to avail additional three months of part-time work (Five hours) at an equivalent pay basis or additional three months of unpaid leave.

Effective April 1st, 2016, these benefits will also apply to cases of adoption and surrogacy.

The company added over 60% of their workforce in the last one year.

Roles of women at Urban Ladder range from design, technology, marketing, sourcing, customer service among many others.

 “We have a healthy female to male diversity ratio of 38:62 and we believe this is a key catalyst to our business performance. We’ve noticed that career progression of many female employees coincides at the time when they decide to start families. Some of them decide to stop working leading to a leaky pipeline of high potential women at the middle of the pyramid. Revising the maternity leave policy is the first step towards ensuring we give them the required support they need to pursue their career goals while raising a family,” said Geetika Metha, Vice-president – HR, Urban Ladder.
