HELPING SHAPE WORKPLACES SO PARENTS AND BUSINESSES CAN THRIVE.
PARENTAL SUPPORT STRATEGY FOR BUSINESSES
You know that supporting parents is good for business, and that retaining your valued employees ensures significant savings in attrition costs. But where do you start? There’s a lot of advice out there and it can feel overwhelming. That’s where Power of the Parent® steps in – we’ll guide you through the transformation you’re looking for by figuring out what you’re already great at and what needs some fresh, practical thinking.
We recently did a session with Charlotte on Supporting Parents in the Workplace aimed at People Managers and it was a great event. Charlotte wanted to learn about our business beforehand to ensure it was relevant to our partners and was professional, well prepped, engaging and Charlotte delivered exactly what we had hoped to get from the session. We are hoping we get the opportunity to work with Charlotte again in the future.
