XPO has begun offering 10 days of additional paid leave for UK and Ireland colleagues while they or their partners undergo fertility treatment. This applies equally to anyone in any relationship. The policy is part of XPO’s commitment to ensuring that its people receive the care and support they need during some of the most stressful times in life.
Lynn Brown, vice president of human resources, UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics, said, “We’re there for our people when they need us the most. We understand that fertility treatment is hugely stressful, so we are doing what we can to remove finance-related concerns. Our people go the extra mile for the business and customers; we want to make sure we’re going the extra mile for them. This policy reinforces XPO’s employee support and benefits packages, which rank among the most progressive in the UK and Ireland.”
