Spotlight on Joyous’ parental leave policy

Our team has been talking about what makes a good parental leave benefit, and local SME Joyous has come up in conversation because of its progressive and flexible policy 👶🏽

The benefit has 6 parts to it, and we’re particularly taken with the flexible return element. If a parent realises they’ve come back to work too soon, they can go back on leave and return later. We love this because it makes space for the nuance of life, and the way things can change in a heartbeat 💓

The policy has been open-sourced for others to reuse, and is available for *all* parents at Joyous, including the non-traditional kinds.
