About the Event

News Flash - People are our most valuable assets so it’s important for us to recognize employees as humans and whole people - including family life.

Returning to work after parental leave can be difficult -- from exhaustion to finding a "new normal" routine, becoming a working parent is a major adjustment.

In this session, Allison will provide:

  • Understanding of the value of bringing parents back to workforce & the impact to your bottom line
  • Framework on how to audit current parental support strategies
  • Tips to help parents thrive in their return to work that won’t break the bank
  • Understanding about how these strategies can help retain/attract top talent
