Parental leave coaching can improve talent retention. The challenge for many organisations is just how to provide it in a way that’s affordable and accessible for more than just its senior employees
The Parental Leave Toolkit gives both managers and individuals access to our comprehensive coaching knowledge and experience in an easy to use personalised plan so that they can understand what they need to do, when, and have the means to do it.
The Parental Leave Toolkit, is a ‘light touch’ online/app solution.
Users simply add their leave type and dates of their leave and this creates a bespoke plan to suit them; a schedule of useful videos, coaching tools, shared experiences, checklists and handy reminders tailored to their role and the leave they – or their team member – are taking.
The Parental Leave Toolkit helps individuals plan and prepare their successful transition, think through and resolve issues and challenges that they might face
Having better conversations at work, a proactive approach and planning ahead are at the heart of a well-managed parental leave. So the Toolkit provides support for all aspects of an employee’s professional transition – everything from managing stakeholders, thinking through working arrangements, maintaining their profile through to a successful return to work.
Because the personal side of the transition is just as important, there are resources to help with all aspects from choosing and finding childcare, to building a support network, developing confidence and enabling new parents to work out how their new work+family world can best work for them.
One of the biggest challenges for employers can be keeping track of who is taking leave, when and how.
The Parental Leave dashboard provides employers with greater insight into their maternity/paternity population and enables them to understand the value employees are getting from using it.
Inclusive resources are relevant to mothers, fathers, same sex partners, adoptive parents and anyone taking Shared Parental Leave.
The Parental Leave Toolkit is available as both a UK specific and global version. Organisations can also enhance the Toolkit to signpost parental leave policy, practice, and other relevant internal resources.
