Working Parents and Carers Coaching

Working families

We’re building a better workplace

It’s a new day. Organizations risk a long-term talent exodus – one that unequally impacts women and diverse talent – if they don’t address the needs of working families.  

Talking Talent helps working caregivers participate and prosper in your workforce.    

When push comes to shove. 

 

What happens when an employee’s work-life equation just doesn’t add up? There are no easy answers. But when employees face that problem on their own, the outcome is all too often: A) Find a new job or B) Leave the workforce altogether.  

Coaches help your employees consider all the other choices. Your employees get a fresh perspective in moments that matter – and discover alternate ways to problem solve.  

Over two thirds (68%) feel professional pressures now negatively impact their ability to be the parent they’d like to be, whilst three in five (57%) feel guilty that they don’t spend enough time with their children. 

Parental Transitions Coaching 

Whether you call it maternity leave or parental leave, either way, it doesn’t have to be so stressful. (Honest.) Coaches are there for your employees throughout the transition: 

  • Before arrival  
  • Return to work 
  • Long-term career sustainability 
  • Emotional support 

Coaches and learning materials are designed to support all parents, no matter their path to parenthood. That means maternity coaching, paternity coaching, adoptive parent supports and more.

"I was feeling quite overwhelmed returning to work and a bit unsure of how things might work, balancing both work and home. Having the opportunity to talk to someone who was independent and able to provide insight and a bit of steer was invaluable".
