Up to 87% (ONS) of parents in the UK are being asked to homeschool or manage childcare, as well as meeting work demands. The impact in terms of stress and wellbeing at the moment is visible – 1/4 women are considering quitting or downshifting their careers (McKinsey & Company) and some employers are missing the opportunity to support parents and avoid a costly loss of valuable team members.
This event aims to tell you exactly what you can be doing to support working parents now and in the future.
Zara Nanu at Gapsquare, Kristal McNamara, Gapsquare’s flexible working expert & Director of WorkWell Bristol and Ursula Tavender @flexpo & MUMBELIEVABLE LIMITED and Osborne Clarke’s Phillip Chivers will offer advice on creating a sustainable action plan to supporting parents in the workplace. They’ll be talking about:
- The impact of lockdown and homeschooling on parents
- Best practices to support working parents
- How and why flexible working practices can help
- Taking these learnings forward post-work from home
