Our hybrid and remote working policy allows our employees to not be limited to the amount of time needed for their or their partner's antenatal care. As long as our employees submit documentation from their doctor, midwife, or healthcare provider, Switchee is on board with ensuring that partners and babies are being well looked after.
Creating more time for our employees to care for their children means we are living our values of being trusted, mindful, enabled, compassionate, and truth-seeking.
