Lotte Group — Paternity leave becomes mandatory at South Korean conglomorate

One powerful way to ride the truth that is positive impact on the world? Make positive changes to your internal culture. Now more than ever, consumers can see – and care about – what’s going on inside your brand.

In December 2016, paternity leave became mandatory for male employees at the multinational conglomerate Lotte Group. New fathers working at the South Korea-based corporation will be required to take a minimum of one month of paternity leave when their partner gives birth, receiving 100% of their wages for the first month of leave. The initiative, which aims to remove the stigma around paternity leave, was announced at the 5th Lotte WOW (Way of Women) Forum.
