Mother’s day is just around the corner. Despite all the progress in women’s empowerment, many new mothers are still hesitant to take 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 and passion for building products. As an employee-centric organization, we have invested heavily in policies and practices that empower professionals, especially working moms, to reach their true potential without sacrificing family time.
Fact – Working mothers make up over 25% of our workforce in Italy.
Here are some excellent benefits that women enjoy at Kaleyra:
Flexible hours of working
At Kaleyra, we have flexible hours of working. A working professional spends a lot of time at work, and it is vital that they are happy during that time, doing things that they are passionate about. With flexible working hours, employees, especially women with children, have the freedom to manage their work and professional commitments with ease.
Unlimited work from home
Remote working option would help a lot of working mothers strike the perfect work-life balance and pursue their career goals. At Kaleyra, all the employees are given the option of working from home for as long as they want.
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 for women at Kaleyra is the option to extend the maternity leave.
Reduced working hours for new mothers
We also give 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 the right balance between work life and family life without sacrificing either.
Apart from these perks, we also conduct fun activities for new mothers like virtual Yoga sessions and games for teams and their families. Our happy work culture is one of the critical drivers for our success. Our flexible work culture encourages employees to stay happy and achieve their true potential at work.
