BRIDGETOWN, BARBADOS — {12 November 2019} — At KPMG in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, we are committed to being the Employer of Choice, and for us that means actively engaging our employees, ensuring that we remain a desirable place to work, and implementing policies that our staff would find beneficial and attractive.  

Against that backdrop, we are pleased to announce that we have introduced enhanced maternity and paternity leave for our employees in our four offices - Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. 

Under the new policy, maternity leave has been extended from three months’ paid leave to three months’ paid leave, plus two additional months at 75 percent of net pay; while paternity leave has been extended from three days to 20 days.

 “We’re very pleased to introduce this policy at a time when regionally there has been much emphasis on health and wellness, including workplace breastfeeding policies, the ongoing fight of non-communicable diseases, and generally ensuring that that the workforce is equipped with the necessary tools and mechanisms to effect meaningful changes in their lives, homes, communities, and their workplaces,” commented Managing Partner of KPMG Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Lisa Taylor. 

“At KPMG, we strive to be the Clear Choice- for our clients, our employees, and the communities in which we serve,” Ms. Taylor concluded.
