Staying involved. Minimizing stress. Reaping the rewards of dedication, motivation and productivity.

Supporting families improves loyalty and performance. These are essential in an environment where our success depends entirely on our people. PwC believes you can be fully committed to your family while having a rewarding career.

Planning your family

The decision to start a family is often accompanied by concerns about timing, finances, career, health and a long-term commitment to care for and support another human being.

PwC believes you can be a great parent and a great professional. Our programs, benefits and supportive culture are designed with that belief in mind.

Supporting families through enhanced benefits

From expanding your family through adoption, birth or surrogacy, to caring for a parent or loved one, we take pride in investing in competitive programs and policies that support a broad range of family needs so you can be your best at work and in life.

Parental Leave

Giving parents time to focus on the new member of their family is important at PwC.  Eligible new parents receive, within the first year from birth or adoption/foster placement, eight weeks of paid parental leave. An additional two weeks is available to new parents with more than one new child on the same date, and/or an additional six weeks to staff who consider themselves to be the primary caregiver of a child newly placed for adoption or born via surrogate.

Phased Return to Work

Returning to work with a new child at home can be a challenge. That’s why we’re helping our people transition back to work by giving them the option to work 60% of hours, at full-time pay, for an additional four weeks immediately following paid parental leave.

Coming back to work

Coming back to work after a long leave is likely to take more than a brief period of adjustment. That's why our new Parental Leave benefit allows new parents (both men and women) to transition back to a part-time schedule for the first few weeks, if they feel it will help them. We also provide our professionals with parenting and childcare programs designed to take the stress out of returning to work. They include:

Emergency backup childcare reimbursement program

The Just-In-CaseTM program helps our staff plan ahead and get reimbursement for the cost of emergency backup care for children, older relatives, and dependent adults. The program is designed to assist staff in managing backup care needs so they don't have to miss time from work. Staff receive reimbursement for up to $1000 of backup care costs per year when their typical child care or elder care falls through.

Mentor Moms

Our Mentor Moms program is designed to connect new mothers or mothers-to-be with another PwC mom who has already experienced juggling motherhood and career at the Firm. The goal is to provide newer mothers with a connection to someone who can provide guidance, insights, or just a sounding board as they make important decisions about their career. Each new mom who participates is paired with a mentor, who then offers support and guidance over a period of 18 months.
