Solutions to support women and their organisations through maternity transition

Why are organisations investing in support for working mums?

Becoming a parent is major life transition for women and so often a time when their careers stall. Organisations that recognise this and take steps to retain and re-engage their female talent:

  • Build and sustain a strong female talent pipeline

  • Increase the wellbeing of their working mums

  • Broaden the age and gender diversity of the organisation

  • Improve their reputation as a family-friendly employer

  • Increase productivity among parents

  • Reduce the gender pay gap

  • Save on recruitment costs due to skills gaps

Say hello today and let's talk about how your organisation can achieve these changes.
