Priyanka Chopra’s special return gift for her employees on her 36th birthday is…
The former Miss World and now an international star, Priyanka Chopra just turned 36. And while the fierce feminist has received lots of wishes and gifts, she, in return, has some amazing return gifts for her female employees. According to Dr. Madhu Chopra, Priyanka’s mother and business partner, PeeCee has introduced flexible working hours for mothers along with maternity leave benefits, monetary assistance for post-pregnancy care and a crèche arrangement in order to encourage a gender-neutral working environment.
Dr. Madhu told in an interview, “Since 80 percent of our female staff is married, we had to keep their interests in mind. The idea was simple — why should women’s life choices become professional hurdles? The policy of flexible timings for mothers was set in place by Priyanka but fine-tuned by senior members of our company.
“We give 12 weeks’ maternity leave and financial assistance for care,” added Dr. Madhu who also explained that Priyanka wanted to create an environment where women feel safe and loved.
The ‘Quantico’ star is a shining example of a ‘Shero’ in this largely male-dominating industry. She has always raised her voice for gender parity and ensured that her actions and decisions should also reflect her thoughts. According to sources, Priyanka will be the first actor to share a part of the profit from her upcoming film ‘The Sky is Pink’.
Well, for those wondering, the star also gives paternity leaves.
