becoming a parent

We support and help our people when they become parents, with the assistance of our service partner baby friendly companies (https://www.babyfriendlycompanies.co.za/).

We celebrate our people becoming parents with a birth gift and return-to-work gift, in addition to other benefits that assist our people during this time including: flexible maternity leave (up to six months, or the option to work part time whilst on leave), remote work and flexi-time, and an employee wellness programme.

When you let us know that you’re going to become a parent, you’ll receive a gift book, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, which is filled with helpful information, advice, insights and tips for a new generation of moms and dads.

Upon the birth of your baby, ooba sends you a practical and personalised baby hamper to celebrate this life changing moment with you.

We celebrate your return-to-work with a gift of a Nicky-Teether, which is recommended by paediatricians. It stimulates the five senses of the baby: sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch.
