June 04, 2024

Note to U.S. and Puerto Rico colleagues below from Sara Wechter, Chief Human Resources Officer.


We are excited to announce Citi’s enhanced Parental Leave and new Caregiver Leave for colleagues in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

These changes underscore our commitment to an inclusive workplace and supporting colleagues and their families through major life stages. Beginning immediately:

  • All new parents will receive 16 weeks of paid leave, ensuring more time to bond with a child and supporting all paths to parenthood.
  • Birth parents will receive additional paid recovery time of up to eight weeks.
  • All colleagues will be eligible for two weeks of paid leave annually to care for an immediate family member. 

Our goal is to introduce similar leave programs across the globe over time.

We are so proud of Citi’s commitment to providing all colleagues more time to focus on family at the most important moments. We are confident that these changes will further foster an environment where each of us can thrive both personally and professionally. We are also thankful to our Families Matter Inclusion Network for all it has done to support our colleagues and champion family life as an integral part of well-being.
