New York - Today, a worldwide leader in financial protection strategies and wealth management, AXA Group, announced paid parental leave policies globally to support employees in all 64 countries in which it operates, including the United States.

Effective January 1, 2017, AXA’s Paid Parental Leave Policy is open to eligible AXA employees, regardless of whether they are biological or adoptive parents, same-sex couples, or single parents. Under AXA’s Paid Parental Leave Policy, the primary parent will be eligible to receive up to 16 consecutive weeks of paid leave to be used for child bonding and/or to care for a newly born or adopted child. Those with co-parenting responsibilities will be eligible to receive up to 4 consecutive weeks of paid leave. All leaves granted under this policy will be paid at 100% of the employee’s base salary.

“Our progressive parental leave policy coupled with our Total Rewards package allows AXA to recruit and retain cutting-edge talent, be a great place to work, and appeal to a workforce that values inclusion and personal responsibilities when choosing an employer,” said Marine de Boucaud, Chief HR Officer, AXA US.

To help its employees balance workplace demands with their commitments at home, AXA also offers flexible working options, nursing rooms, back-up care programs, and an infant transition program.

Employees remain at the heart of that mission and are offered a comprehensive Total Rewards package that provides them with flexibility and financial support.
