PTCL Group Achieves Milestone in Organizational Culture with Enhanced Maternity and Paternity Leave Policies

Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) Group, a pioneer in the telecommunications and integrated ICT services sector, has marked a significant milestone in promoting a supportive and inclusive organizational culture. PTCL Group reaffirms its commitment to its employees’ well-being and work-life balance by introducing extended maternity and paternity leave policies.

Maternity Leave: Empowering New Mothers

Recognizing new mothers’ crucial role in their families and the workplace, PTCL Group’s revised maternity leave policy offers six months of fully paid leave. This generous provision acknowledges the importance of ample time for new mothers to recover from childbirth and nurture their newborns during the early months. This extended maternity leave not only supports mothers’ physical and emotional well-being but also contributes to infants’ long-term health and development.

Paternity Leave: Fostering an Active Role for Fathers

In a remarkable stride towards gender equality, PTCL Group has also introduced a 30-day fully paid paternity leave. This forward-thinking initiative emphasizes the importance of fathers’ involvement in caregiving responsibilities and bonding with their newborns. What sets PTCL Group apart is the flexibility it offers through staggered paternity leave, allowing fathers to take time off during the first year of their child’s birth. This accommodation recognizes the evolving dynamics of modern families and allows fathers to actively participate in their children’s upbringing.

Aligning with Leading Employers

Shoaib Baig, Group Chief People Officer, stated that the policy changes were designed to align PTCL Group’s practices with those of leading employers in Pakistan. By embracing progressive and family-friendly policies, the company is committed to creating an inclusive work environment that values professional and personal priorities. The introduction of extended maternity and paternity leaves is a testament to PTCL Group’s dedication to its ongoing cultural transformation journey, known as ‘#TayyarHo.’

A Holistic Approach to Employee Well-being

The ‘Family Friendly’ policies introduced by PTCL Group go beyond maternity and paternity leaves, encompassing a range of benefits that support employee well-being and work-life integration. By offering a comprehensive package of policies and guidelines, PTCL Group empowers its employees to excel in their roles while managing their familial commitments. This approach enhances employee satisfaction and loyalty and contributes to the company’s overall productivity and success.

Becoming an Employer of ChoicePTCL

Group’s commitment to fostering an inclusive and supportive work environment positions it as an employer of choice in Pakistan’s competitive job market. By valuing diversity, promoting gender equality, and prioritizing employee welfare, the company sets a benchmark for other organizations to emulate.

As the company continues its cultural transformation journey with the ‘#TayyarHo’ initiative, it sets a positive example for businesses across Pakistan to prioritize family-friendly policies and contribute to a more inclusive and balanced work environment.
