New fathers working in IKEA's stores and offices across Southeast Asia will get four weeks of paternity leave, the Swedish furniture giant said.

“This year, throughout our stores and offices in Southeast Asia, we are introducing one month of paid paternity leave to enable new fathers to take a more active role at home after the birth of a new baby,” IKEA said in a news release. “It’s a small step that makes a big difference to the dads in our business, and their partners.”

Ms Song added that IKEA has no immediate plans to review the 16 weeks' paid maternity leave for mothers.
