Starting and Growing a Healthy Family
Many employees choose to start and grow their families during their careers at Gannett Fleming, and it’s our goal to maintain a family culture and benefits supporting all family types.
INCLUSIVE FAMILY BENEFITS
Gannett Fleming champions LGBTQ+ pride year-round, and one way we do this is to ensure equivalency in the following:
- Same- and different-sex spousal medical and soft benefits.
- Same- and different-sex domestic partner medical and soft benefits.
- Spousal and domestic partner family formation benefits.
- Spousal and domestic partner family bereavement benefits.
FERTILITY AND FAMILY BUILDING
In the U.S., approximately one in eight couples struggle to conceive. That’s why we’re proud to offer medical insurance coverage that includes fertility benefits for infertility services, including testing to diagnose the causes and treatments and procedures for infertility. Since infertility treatment and options can be highly personalized, we encourage our employees to contact our benefits administrator and health plan’s member services to learn more about covered services.
PAID PARENTAL LEAVE
Gannett Fleming is dedicated to supporting employees who become new parents through birth (including surrogate birth), adoption, or foster care placement of a child. As part of this dedication, Gannett Fleming provides U.S. employees with two weeks of paid parental leave, which runs concurrently with the 12 weeks of leave allowed by the Family Medical Leave Act and is sometimes colloquially referred to as maternity or paternity leave, to all eligible, full-time employees to allow them to bond with their child. Eligible part-time employees can also take paid parental leave at a prorated amount. If both parents work at Gannett Fleming, they are both eligible to use the benefit. Gannett Fleming also complies with the requirements of specific province, federal, state, and local government laws and regulations regarding parental leave.
NURSING WELLNESS ROOMS
U.S. federal law requires employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act to provide basic accommodations for breastfeeding parents at work, including time for the parent to express milk and a private space that is not a bathroom to use each time they need to pump. However, many of our offices have been outfitted with private wellness rooms equipped with a fridge, comfortable chair, and Wi-Fi to go beyond the requirements and create a more relaxing experience.
