Google broadens its offerings of family-friendly and fertility benefits

Starting April 2024, Google in the UK will introduce enhanced family-friendly and fertility benefits for its employees. This includes offering four rounds of IVF for employees and their partners, additional assistance for fertility-related issues, adoption, and surrogacy, as well as the option for elective egg freezing.

The company emphasizes that supporting employees in building families aligns with its employee-centric culture. Currently, Google's benefits encompass a minimum of 18 weeks of paid leave for all new parents, with birthing parents receiving a minimum of 24 weeks. Additionally, Google provides flexible working arrangements, onsite lactation rooms, and backup childcare services.

Furthermore, Google's medical insurance coverage will now extend to include pregnancy-related conditions such as ectopic pregnancy, retained placenta, postpartum hemorrhage, and miscarriage requiring immediate surgical treatment.

Debbie Weinstein, VP and Managing Director of Google UK and Ireland, expressed enthusiasm about the expansion of family-building benefits, highlighting the invaluable support it will provide to employees at various stages of growing their families. As a mother and business leader, Weinstein acknowledges the challenges and rewards of parenthood and is proud that Google will soon offer industry-leading support to all UK-based employees during these significant life moments.
