Transactions Actuary at Swiss Re, Eric Tsui, discusses the challenges he encountered when taking parental leave, and the support he received from his employer to do so. This instalment of the Institute’s Diversity and Inclusion at work series discusses the topic of parental leave with an interview between Ashish Ahluwalia (Principal at Finity Consulting) and Eric Tsui. The pair discuss how employers who are: 1. committed to diversity and inclusion in its broadest sense; and 2. allow their employees to achieve a real balance between work and family are able to increase their employee retention. In the podcast, Eric describes the difference between being in the workplace and being on parental leave. “When you are on parental leave your mind is kind of idle, but it’s a very physical kind of job, wrangling a baby or just pushing the pram for kilometres on end.” - Eric Tsui Children grow up so quickly and as Eric says “every moment, every time they do something it could be the last time that they do it because they move into a different phase”. The main benefit to Eric has been “developing a closer bond with my son”. Luckily, both his and his wife’s employers enabled this family to be there for those important moments.
