When an employee becomes a parent, it’s a huge change in their personal and professional life. Developed in partnership with some of the UK’s leading maternity and paternity experts, this course takes you through the process of working with new parents and managing the implications of maternity and paternity for the wider organisation.


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.

Employee maternity and paternity will also impact on your other employees and the organisation as a whole, so the effective management of any transitions and changes will be important for the smooth operation of your business.

Developed in partnership with My Family Care and combining key learnings with thought-provoking drama and insight from the experts, this course provides a comprehensive toolkit for managing parents-to-be and new parents in the workplace.
