Deloitte Families

Making work work for families.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you are a carer, parent (including birth, adoptive, surrogate and foster), spouse, or friend, we know that family matters.

We know close to 40% of our people have caring responsibilities, and that's why we're so focused on making work work for families.

Pip Dexter, Chief People & Purpose Officer 

Taking action

If you’re getting ready to begin your parenting journey, supporting elderly parents, or caring for a loved one with a disability or serious illness, we understand how important it is that you feel supported in your caring responsibilities.

Leading the way on Parental leave

We’re proud to support new parents returning to work with up to 28.4 weeks of parental leave. This is the combination of 18 weeks of paid parental leave and the ability to receive up to 10.4 weeks of additional pay as a part of our return to work support payment.

Our policy is inclusive of all types of families, including birth, adoptive, surrogate, foster and same-sex parents. We encourage all parents, regardless of gender, to actively care for their families.
