Asos launches new policies to provide support for employees

The policies are gender neutral and apply to everyone regardless of who they are or their circumstances

Asos have announced the launch of a new package of policies, set to provide support to its colleagues for health-related life events.

Some of the policies include: ten days paid leave for employees who have suffered a pregnancy loss; 5 days per cycle for colleagues and partners undergoing fertility treatment; up to 6 weeks for other health-related life events such as gender reassignment surgery, and flexible working for employees going through the menopause.

The policies are gender neutral and apply to everyone regardless of who they are or their circumstances. 

According to Asos, the new policy framework will allow colleagues to take the time away from work that they “need”, while also increasing awareness of the impact of common life events and “breaking down” the taboos around these issues.

Nick Beighton, CEO at Asos, said: “All of us face unexpected challenges in life, and sometimes these can create very difficult circumstances which mean we need to step away from or change how we work. 

“We’ve launched these new policies to reassure all colleagues that they will continue to be supported, personally and financially, throughout those difficult times. We’re here, no matter what it is and every step of the way.” 

Asos will also provide ongoing support for appointments and flexible working as needed.
