Maternity and paternity

The management guide

Course Overview: 

There are few more important moments in a person’s life than becoming a parent – and as an employer, you have an important role in supporting them on their journey. The process starts from the moment you are informed of a pregnancy and continues far beyond your employee’s return to work - and the investment you make in effective communication and planning will be extremely important for the employee’s wellbeing and commitment to return.
