Kering bets for equality: extends baby leave to all parents



Motherhood, fatherhood or adoption. Kering has decided to extend its baby leave permit to all its employees with a new child. This initiative is part of the action boosted by the luxury group to achieve equality in the workplace.


“Kering is making a big step forward by giving all of its employees the possibility of taking 14 weeks of paid leave for what we call baby leave,” Béatrice Lazat, Kering’s chief people officer told WWD.


In 2017, Kering extended the maternity leave to fourteen weeks, which included same sex adoptions. The extension of its baby leave will start working in January.  


Also, Kering has set as a goal to prioritize the promotion of women in the company. Women are 63% of the company’s employees and 51% of its executives.
