The food tech unicorn Zomato has introduced 26-week parental leave for all employees, both men and women. By this Zomato has become the first Indian Company to have such a policy.
The policy also applies to non-birthing parents, and in cases of surrogacy, adoption, and same-sex partners. In a blog post, Deepinder Goyal, Founder said Zomato believed people produce their best work when their personal and professional goals meaningfully intersect and align.
“According to me, a lot of that imbalance at the top stems from an unequal leave policy for men and women when they welcome their children to this world,”
