WILLIAM HILL launches its new Neonatal Policy

This Thursday 17 november was World Prematurity Day. Approximately 15 million babies are born preterm each year, accounting for about one in 10 of all babies born worlwide. William Hill has launched its new Neonatal Policy
Currently, thousands of parents every year have no choice but to return to work while their baby is in hospital or spend months of their parental leave next to an incubator. That is why we are pleased to announce that we are launching our new Neonatal Leave policy for UK colleagues. 

Their Additions to the Your Family policy will now include: 

- Neonatal leave for parents of babies admitted to hospital as a neonate for the duration that the baby remains in neonatal care, provided the admission lasts for a continuous period of one week or more
- Entitlement to full pay for the duration of neonatal leave
- Eligibility to take paid neonatal leave from day one of employment

Our policy goes beyond the expected statutory entitlement, providing full pay for the duration of a neonatal admission of one week or more, regardless of how long the colleague has worked for William Hill.

Mark Skinner, Chief People Officer, said: "Taking care of our colleagues remains a priority for us. If our colleagues are facing the worry of a premature or sick baby it is only right that we do what we can to support them. I am proud of this commitment and it's another example of why people would want to join and love to stay at 888 William Hill". 

Our introduction of paid neonatl leave has been welcomed by Bliss, a charity for babies born premature and sick.

Caroline Lee-Daviy, Chief Executive at Bliss, said: "Bliss is delighted to hear that William Hill is introducing neonatal leave and pay ahead of this becoming a statutory requirement. As the UK's leading charity for babies born premature and sick, we know what a difference it makes for both parents to have this much-needed time to be by their baby's side in hospital. Without the worry of rushing back to work, parents are able to be involved in delivering hands-on care, which is vital to their baby having the best possible outcomes".
