Breaking the gender stereotype, Deutsche Bank allows childcare leaves to men
The new leave policy is being rolled out across
"The new parental leave policy centres on the caregiver's responsibility, rather than tie parental leave to gender, and replaces what was previously called maternity/paternity leave. It also covers surrogacy and adoption and aligns it with parental leave entitlements. Deutsche Bank employees who are new parents can choose to either be the primary caregiver or the non-primary caregiver within the duration of the parental leave."
The main caregiver or the one who takes primary responsibility for care of his/her child during the bank's typical work hours is eligible for the leave.
The policy is expected to provide greater flexibility and choice for parents to take care for their newborn or adopted child alongside their careers.
