hopes to become an employer of choice by extending maternity and paternity
entitlement, boosting wages and retaining final salary pensions.
of next year, the motor company will be offering one of the most generous
maternity entitlements around, said Ford’s director for diversity, Surinder
said Ford will extend the entitlement to 52 weeks full pay.
years ago, female workers at Ford were only offered 12 weeks maternity pay.
Last year, the company extended this to 40 weeks full pay, but felt extending
it further would strengthen its position in the marketplace.
said: "This new package will help us recruit and retain more women in a
very competitive marketplace."
