About this project

While creating this report, I have refrained from using complex visuals, given the fact that this information is meant to be published in an online journal. The insights provided would be beneficial to future parents that might work in different industries or come from different backgrounds.

The insights are centered around the fact that most companies are offering less than 14 weeks of maternity leave (paid & unpaid). 14 weeks is the minimum maternity leave period mandated by the International Labour Organization. Only 24% of the companies are offering 14 weeks of paid maternity leave.

There are a couple of caveats that had to be included, such as the fact that the data pertaining to paternal leave was available for only 19% of the companies. There were a couple of N/As within the industries as well, so I have researched those companies in order to assign them to the proper group (one of the methods was finding who their competitors are and checking if any of those companies were included in the dataset).

In the last sections, I have based the research on Industries rather than Sub-Industries and excluded all Industries that are represented with less than 50 Companies in the dataset. This helped me narrow down and identify the industries that are leading the negative trend when it comes to parental leave policy.

In order to compare the insights that are drawn from the dataset with information surrounding the recommended parental leave period, I have used information from the brochures found on the International Labour Organization website.

Hey, Luka: Love the visual! What tech did you use for it? Was it just Power BI?
