Award-winning lender and Intermediary technology provider, finova announces the launch of an enhanced family friendly policy for its UK team. The inclusive internal policy aims to increase the period for full paid maternity and paternity leave and support those suffering with fertility problems or pregnancy loss. ​

Data suggests 3.5 million people In the UK are currently suffering with fertility issues, while 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss during pregnancy or during birth. Furthermore, many couples and individuals are embarking on alternative paths to parenthood, reflecting the variety of family structures that exist today - all of which can be a mentally and physically exhausting period.  ​

​Through finova’s new policy all staff will be entitled to: ​

  • 16 weeks full paid maternity leave ​
  • 4 weeks full paid paternity leave ​
  • 10 days paid leave after pregnancy loss which applies to both partners. ​
  • 5 days paid fertility leave which applies to both partners. ​

Newly appointed Head of People, Emily Glew said: ​

“We are so pleased to roll out our latest family friendly policy. Our people really are the foundation of finova and after listening to how we could further develop our existing policies, we felt it is our responsibility as an employer to make this available to everyone at finova.    ​

As a company, we are committed to ensuring our teams feel fully supported and included, at a time that can be the most beautiful and difficult for many people.    ​

Over the coming months we will be expanding our policies and continuing to make finova an inclusive and family friendly place to work.”   ​
