Kaleyra Mother’s Day Stories

by | May 8, 2020

Mother’s day is just around the corner. Even with all the progress in women’s empowerment, many new mothers are still hesitant to take up full-time roles at a workplace due to commitments at home. A supportive and happy work culture that is transparent and flexible can go a long way in encouraging greater participation of women especially mothers in the workforce. 

As a product company, we at Kaleyra have always strived to nurture and maintain a friendly and flexible work culture that promotes diversity, ideation, and passion for building products. As a people-centric organization, we have invested heavily in employee-centric policies and practices that empower professionals especially working moms to reach their true potential at work without sacrificing family time. Working mothers make up over 25% of our workforce in Italy. 

Here are some of the key benefits Kaleyra provides to working women in the team: 

Unlimited work from home

At Kaleyra, we have unlimited work from home. With virtual tools, we ideate, build and measure results continuously. A transparent and flexible workplace is a bane to working mothers who want to pursue their career goals.

Flexi hours of working

At Kaleyra we have flexible hours of working. As a professional, you spend a lot of time at work and it is crucial that you are happy during that time, doing things that you are passionate about. With flexible working hours, employees especially women with children have the freedom to manage their personal work and professional commitments with ease. 

Extended maternity leave

Many women drop out of the workforce post maternity due to demanding or rigid work practices. One of the key benefits we provide at Kaleyra is the option for extended maternity leave for women. 

Reduced working hours for new mothers

We also have the option of taking up reduced working hours for new mothers who return to work. 

For new mothers juggling with added family responsibilities, this flexible option allows for striking a good balance between work life and family life without sacrificing either. 

Apart from these perks, we also conduct many interactive and fun activities for new mothers like virtual Yoga sessions and games for teams and their families. Our happy work culture is one of the key drivers for our success. We pride in our inclusive and flexible work culture that encourages people to be happy and achieve their true potential at work.
