Oman Cables shares introduction of new parental policies

by Madaline Dunn

Oman Cables Industry (OCI), a cable solutions provider in the Sultanate of Oman, has announced the introduction of a new parental policy.

This new policy extends the fully paid maternity coverage period for mothers from 12 to 16 weeks at full salary. Fathers, meanwhile, will see expanded paternity leave, now set at a minimum of two weeks (10 working days) at full salary, up from the previous three days.

The OCI has also introduced a “Baby Bonus” from January 1, 2024, set at 900 Omani Rial.

Cinzia Farisè, CEO of Oman Cables, commented: “Our new parental policy is in harmony with OCI’s social ambition, providing concrete help to those wanting to become and supporting parenthood as a special time to be embraced. We take pride in reinforcing our efforts towards diversity, equity and inclusion, while fostering a positive journey into parenthood for all our employees.”

Further, OCI shared that it has enforced its “Leave and Back to Work Program,” a support initiative for mothers.

This program, starting as mothers approach parental leave and extending into their initial months back at work, features a “Stay in Contact” plan agreed upon with managers before the leave period.

Upon returning, the program, which includes training and counselling, can be activated.
