Helping parents feel supported

When showing up shows you care

For your employees, having a child, be it their first or fourth, is always an amazing and life-changing event. Your employee may feel daunted or excited about the prospect of having a baby, leaving their job to go on parental leave, returning to work, or a combination of all of these things.

Put their mind at ease by helping them understand how parental leave programs work.

When you make it easy for parents to stay in touch, keep their skills up-to-date while ‘offline’, and plan their return to work program with ease, you nurture loyalty and engagement. That all starts with choice.

Providing choice and control throughout the transition to parental leave and the return to work can help ensure the best possible experience for your people - and enhance your employer brand.

“Providing the right support for your employee during this time is crucial not only for your employee but also for the organisation. The support you will need to provide will be critical from the moment they announce their news - to the moment they return to the office.”

- Sandy Hutchison

Founder and CEO, Career Money Life
