    In the competition to attract and retain talent across multiple generations, the best Employee Value Propositions include family-friendly benefits and policies.

    • Flexible working is the top benefit people look for when considering a new role, way beyond any other typical benefits.**
    • Women put parent and carer benefits second only to flexible working when considering a new role**

    With online comparison sites and social media further increasing transparency on employer culture, policies and benefits, prospective and existing employees have never been more aware or had more access to this level of information. And it matters to them!

    Family-Friendly Business Practice on a Global Scale?
    James Marsh,HRr; Jennifer Liston-Smith, MFC; Sep 26 2019 10:00 am UTC 90 mins
    Increasingly employers want a joined-up global approach to supporting employees in combining work and family. Driven by the competition for talent, greater transparency on gender pay gaps and new gender-neutral expectations around parental leave, we need to ‘think globally and act locally’ working with differing cultural considerations, circumstances and expectations.

    In this lively and practical webinar, James Marsh will be discussing emerging global family-friendly trends and solutions with leading global employers and Jennifer Liston-Smith, Head of Thought Leadership at Bright Horizons Work+Family Solutions. We’ll place particular emphasis on what the UK can learn from, and offer to, other global regions.

    Since Bright Horizons acquired My Family Care in February this year, the combined business serves around 1,500 client organisations globally, bringing deep insights into best practice on policy and on provision from workplace nurseries and backup care to coaching for parents and carers, training for line managers and online resources such as the Parental Leave Toolkit.

    21st Century working: Work+Family - Where do we go from here?
    James Marsh,HRr; Jennifer Liston-Smith, MFC; Nov 7 2019 11:00 am UTC 90 mins
    Technology, demographics, cultural, social and generational changes mean that why and how we work has changed almost beyond recognition in the last decade. There’s now a five generational workplace, fewer of us to do the work, increased care responsibilities and a fundamental shift in how younger generations want to work and how they value the components of work, life and family.

    The pace of that change continues unabated and it demands that we all start thinking in a different way when it comes to the way we work and live, especially when it comes to ‘managing the balance’.

    In this lively, future-gazing webinar, James Marsh will be discussing the trends, challenges and possible solutions with leading global employers and thought leaders. In amongst that panel, Jennifer Liston-Smith, Head of Thought Leadership at Bright Horizons Work+Family Solutions brings her deep insight and experience of working with leading employers to shape programmes to engage and retain talented parents and carers.

    Want to make an impact? Need to make sure your voice is heard and your ideas are taken seriously? Time to change things up and you're not sure how to get others onboard?

    No matter what your job role, personality type, level of experience... YOU can make the difference you want to make. You can persuade others and help them see your point of view.

    We'll make clear distinctions so you won't cross the line between being assertive and obnoxious or aggressive. We'll help you be persuasive without feeling sales-y, selfish, or manipulative. This is all about YOU getting what you want while also helping others get what they want, too. That makes you a leader!
