Welcome AstraZeneca – Supporting Employees with Family and Carer Responsibilities
AstraZeneca have recently launched the “Work, Carer’s & Family Program” to their employees across Australia and New Zealand. AstraZeneca is dedicated to fostering a great place to work and one which cultivates an inclusive and diverse culture for employees. The scope and depth of resources available via the Parents At Work Hub, significantly supports this commitment.
‘At AstraZeneca, we greatly value our employees and the contribution they make to the lives of the patients we support. We understand the challenge of juggling professional and personal responsibilities, and that this changes as we navigate the different stages of life. By offering this excellent resource, we aim to support employees on their personal journey.
The support we offer our employees and their caring responsibilities is highly valued and in the last 12 months, 42% of those utilising our 12 weeks paid parental leave were males. This result is a true indicator that gender equality is core to our company values.'
Liz Chatwin, Country President AstraZeneca – Australia & NZ
Together, AstraZeneca and Parents At Work provide carer, family and wellbeing support through the Work + Family Hub with courses, podcasts, webinars, events and stories for all stages of family life – from parental leave, to raising toddlers and teens, through to navigating aged care.
