New Delhi (CNN Business)Indian startup Zomato is giving six months of paid leave to all new parents among its 5,000 corporate employees worldwide.
The restaurant delivery service announced the policy earlier this week. It will apply to men as well as women employed by the company in 13 countries, and will also be available to “non birthing parents, and in cases of surrogacy, adoption, and same-sex partners,” CEO Deepinder Goyal said in a blog post.
Zomato will also give new parents $1,000 per child, he added.
But the new benefits won’t apply to the company’s 180,000 delivery drivers, most of whom are in India.
