Supporting working parents has never been so crucial, yet policies and workplaces have not kept up with social change. Mothers are seeking gender equality in access to employment whilst fathers increasingly want to make an equal contribution to childcare. Only one in five families say they have a healthy work-life balance with just under half of parents saying that working hours get in the way of family life. Organisations need to update their thinking in order to compete for the best talent.
This conference offers an up to date brief on the current parental leave policies that are available to working parents. It provides a unique opportunity to explore the barriers faced by alternative families and how to best address them and will equip delegates with the insight and tools needed to modernise their organisational culture.
