The move is expected to support the women who make up 38% of its workforce
In an industry-first move, Citibank has introduced a work-from-home (WFH) programme exclusively for the women in its workforce. The move is aimed at helping new mothers balance their family and career successfully.
The programme will allow its women employees to apply for a WFH arrangement for a duration of up to 12 months following their 26-week maternity leave. They will also have an option to extend the duration of leave for up to three months of WFH during the final trimester of pregnancy, subject to evaluation and approval. That means, expecting and new mothers can work from home for a total of 21 months.
