Diageo, the global beverage alcohol company responsible for Guinness, Johnnie Walker, and Captain Morgan, among others, encourages its consumers to enjoy responsibly. The same could be said about the messaging to its own workforce when it comes to maternity benefits.
Out of all the companies on this list, Diageo is in first place for the amount of parental leave gives new parents — a position that’s even more impressive given that the company’s team of just 1,900 employees makes it smaller than most of the others. With 26 weeks of paid time away from work, employees can take advantage of industry-leading perks when they start or expand their families.
Especially crucial in the absence of onsite services, Diageo offers its employees childcare subsidies, a childcare concierge, and telehealth access that employees can access as needed.
