New fathers will be given up to a year’s paternity leave on full salary as part of a new policy unveiled at Virgin by Richard Branson.

Virgin are the first company to offer new dads a full year paternity leave rather than the paltry few weeks most companies offer.

The pay will be service-related, so if you’ve worked for the company for less than two years, you get 25% of your wage while those who’ve worked there for four or more years, you get the full 100%.

All the paternity perks will also apply to adoptive parents.

I believe if you take care of your employees they will take care of your business. As a father and now a proud granddad to three wonderful grandchildren, I know how magical the first year of a child’s life is but also how much hard work it takes. I’m delighted that we can offer this support to our staff so that they can enjoy parental leave to the full. Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Group founder

Fathers have wanted equal paternity leave as mothers get for a long time and Virgin taking the first step in offering this will be a huge step to equality for fathers.
