New measures help mothers return to work

New measures help mothers return to work

New measures to attract and retain women in our workforce have been introduced, including a $4,000 childcare allowance and payment of superannuation on all forms of paid parental leave in Australia.

In New Zealand, we will extend our ‘top-up’ parental leave payment from 12 to 14 weeks.

Chief Executive Officer Mike Smith said: “The measures we’ve announced are intended to have an immediate impact on our ability to retain talented women and, over time, help increase the number of senior women at ANZ.”

The $4,000 childcare allowance will be paid to Australia-based primary caregivers on their return to work. It will complement ANZ’s existing parental leave provisions in Australia that include:

  • 12 weeks paid parental leave at full pay with no qualifying period;
  • the ability to extend unpaid leave up to two years;
  • co-parents leave;
  • carer’s leave; and
  • flexible working arrangements.
