Flow Celebrates New Dads; Company Marks First Anniversary of Parental Leave Policy


As Flow prepares to celebrate Father’s Day throughout the region, the company will also mark the first anniversary of its bold and progressive parental leave policy that includes increased benefits for new mothers and fathers.

The innovative policy, with up to 16 weeks of paid maternity leave for mothers and eight weeks of paid paternity leave for fathers, was introduced in June 2019 and reflects the inclusive global standard set by its parent company – Liberty Latin America.

This has positioned the communications and entertainment provider as an employer of choice by actively demonstrating its support for employees who become new parents whether biologically, via surrogacy or through adoption. In addition, the policy promotes greater family balance at work and at home.

Flow is delighted to be one of the first among corporate citizens in Antigua and Barbuda to offer parental leave to our fathers. Joe Mathieson, Country Manager added, “It is a well-known fact that parental leave has positive long-term benefits for the family, and helps to create healthy parenting relationships, as well as build a strong parent-child connection. Our company is proud of the strides it has made in being the first in the region to adopt such a diverse, progressive policy and leading by example.”

Coming just in time for our annual celebration of Father’s Day, we are delighted to have a parental leave policy that reflects our values of commitment to our people. Flow is proud to be at the forefront of such a progressive policy that creates a work environment where team members and fathers, in particular, can have the time and support needed as they welcome new additions to their families.”

In Antigua and Barbuda, several young fathers expressed gratitude for the policy which will help to support and strengthen their family ties, while giving them that critical time to bond with their newborns.

This policy will strengthen our families, our communities and by extension contribute to the socio-economic development of the wider Antigua and Barbuda society said Marketing and Communications Manager, Shand Merchant. “Flow has once again demonstrated, in a tangible way, its unwavering support to its team members and the communities that it serves.
