Cardno Executive Chairman Michael Alscher, welcomed the parental leave program change to Cardno’s suite of employee health and wellbeing benefits by saying that it will contribute to business growth. “We want to foster a corporate culture at Cardno that invests in and supports our people and recognises the importance of balancing family with career. In return, our people will reward us with their loyalty and by delivering their best performance which will benefit our clients and the wider business.

“The response from our people around this change has been overwhelmingly positive. The change has also been welcomed by our management teams across the U.S., Australia and New Zealand who want to attract and retain high quality team members.”

The Australia and New Zealand program also includes up to 10 paid “keep in touch” days and an additional five days of personal leave for parents with children aged five and under.
