Retaining employees through the transition to parenthood is now a mainstream tenet of most organisations’ talent retention strategy .
It’s been 5 years since Shared Parental Leave was introduced in the UK and Gender Pay Gap reporting has added further impetus to organisations’ efforts to retain women as well as men through the new parent transition. Many employers have reviewed, updated and introduced new programmes, policies and benefits.
In this webinar we’ll be sharing the results and insights from My Family Care’s New Parent Transition Benchmark. It’s been designed to shed light on changes to benefits and policy in this area, high-lighting innovative practice and the impact that organisations have seen as a result.
Elizabeth Kerry, Inclusion Partner, Hermes Investment Management and Gemma Dale, Policy and Engagement Manager, University of Manchester will be sharing their employer journeys in supporting the parental leave transition.
Dr Sarah Forbes is joining us to discuss the findings of the latest research from the University of Birmingham Business School into the factors that enable or block the take-up of Shared Parental Leave.
Last, but my no means least, Jennifer Liston-Smith, Director, Head of Thought Leadership, Coaching & Consultancy at My Family Care will be contributing her insights from long term working relationships with employers across a very diverse range of organisations.
