One on One with Deloitte’s Deepa Purushothaman

Traditional workplace and family dynamic norms are changing rapidly. More men are looking to take a hands-on role at home after the birth of a child than ever before, and the generational shift in the workplace means more younger workers will be taking care of their aging parents.

ART225219_DeepaPurushothamanTraditional workplace and family dynamic norms are changing rapidly. More men are looking to take a hands-on role at home after the birth of a child than ever before, and the generational shift in the workplace means more younger workers will be taking care of their aging parents. In response to these changes, Deloitte has announced a sweeping new Family Leave Program that gives workers up to 16 weeks of paid leave for everything ranging from childbirth to caring for aging parents or grandparents to taking care of a sick spouse or child. It’s a dramatic shift in longstanding paid leave policies and the first of its kind for professional services. Consulting caught up with Deepa Purushothaman, National Managing Director of WIN, Deloitte’s Women’s Initiative to discuss the new program.
