ABU DHABI, 29th February 2024 / -- Gateway Group, a leading company formation specialist in Abu Dhabi, proudly announces its Finance Master, Raja Wajahat, as its first male employee to avail himself of the company's pioneering paternity leave policy, enjoying three months of fully paid leave to bond with his newborn son, Zayan.


Born on 29th December 2023 in Pakistan, a month ahead of schedule, baby Zayan and his mother are in good health, and Gateway Group's generous paternity policy allowed Raja to travel to his home country to support his family during this critical time.

Expressing his gratitude, Raja Wajahat stated, "I am deeply appreciative of Gateway Group's commitment to its employees' well-being. This extended paternity leave has allowed me to fully engage in the precious early moments of my son's life and provide support to my family."
