In Denmark, parents have rights enabling them to share the parental leave in a way that matches the needs and wishes
of each family. It is vital that families retain this flexibility, as it benefits the individual, families and companies.
Pharmadanmark endorses “Mission - Parental Leave for Dads”:
That means that we support the idea of both parents using their opportunities for leave if they so wish. We also support the idea of more
fathers taking leave because we believe that:
- It benefits both parents and the child if fathers are able to play a key role in their child’s life from an early stage.
- Parents who share parental leave are more equal in relation to daily life, working life and society.
- It benefits companies by creating attractive workplaces, by attracting and retaining both male and female employees, and by fostering a good work-life balance.
- It benefits society and gender equality that both parents have equal opportunities in their working life and family life, and it promotes, among other things, equal career opportunities and the ability to make use of the full potential of women and men.
Pharmadanmark promotes a gender-balanced share of parental leave in our organisation.
And we encourage companies, organisations, employees and executives to support fathers taking leave, and further encourage
more companies and organisations to endorse “Mission - Parental Leave for Dads”.
