Fathers and Shared Parental Leave: New research and employer experiences

Take up of SPL is building slowly but it is still low. If we are serious about unleashing the economic potential of women, then it’s not enough just to look at women as leaders. It also needs to be OK for men to be carers. Take up of SPL is therefore a key indicator. And one that enlightened employers have already understood is VITAL to their gender diversity aims.

In Spring 2017 My Family Care conducted a qualitative research study aimed at understanding not only WHY take-up is still relatively low, but to HOW SPL is being used by fathers and partners, WHAT impact it has had on their lives and careers as well as WHAT needs to be done to improve take up.

In this webinar we’ll be sharing our findings and inviting leading employer panellists to comment on the experiences within their organisations.

    James Marsh, HRreview; Jennifer Liston-Smith, My Family Care
    Current Childcare voucher schemes offered through employers will close to new registrants in April 2018. For many employers they’ve been the mainstay of their support for working parents. So what could/should employers be doing to support their employees.

    So in our spring webinar, we’ll examine the benefits and policies options and what other initiatives work for employers. We’ll also consider the pros and cons and the business case of everything from Backup Care to on-site childcare.

    The talent acquisition world is complex for businesses of all sizes, but when managing high-volume hiring you need the right hiring tools that won’t lag behind.

  • Childcare & Employers:Vouchers to Tax-free. What you need to know in 2017 Recorded: Jul 6 2017 62 mins
    James Marsh, HRreview; Jennifer Liston-Smith, My Family Care; Richard Milligan, Computershare; Lindsey Doe, Tinies
    There are lots of legislative changes afoot this year affecting working parents. 30 hours free childcare and Tax-Free Childcare are two separate government schemes, to help parents with the cost of childcare. Current Childcare voucher schemes offered through employers will close to new registrants in April 2018

    So in our summer employer event of the year, we’re looking at all things childcare related.
    With HR benefit experts, we’ll look at how and why the childcare voucher system is changing, together with both the practical and cost implications for employers and what they could or should be doing between now and when the changes come into effect.

    On a broader front we’ll examine where employers are at when it comes to being ‘family-friendly, to what extent do UK employers support working parents with childcare related benefits and support?

    We’ll be sharing the results of our latest employer survey benchmarking family friendly support.

  • Wellbeing and burnout: New research shows it’s real and immediate. Recorded: Jun 7 2017 62 mins
    James Marsh, HRreview; Rob Bravo, Director of Wellbeing,Talking Talent; Sally Evans, Talent Inclusion & Wellbeing, PwC
    It is astonishing to think that as many as three quarters (75%) of professionals aged 25-34 already feel worn out by the type of work and the environment in which they work in. And as many as 57% of all professionals feel that way.

    The threat of burnout is real and immediate. It is not reserved for middle age or later life. In fact, last year in the UK, younger workers took more days off work due to stress than older workers (roughly 65% of 16-24 young workers compared to only 24% of older workers).

    In April 2017, Talking Talent conducted the study ‘working on burnout’ which looks to challenge all types of professional organisations to prioritise the importance of the wellbeing issues experienced by their employees in the workplace and at home. The research highlights the very real impact on individual and organisational performance when the subjective wellbeing of an employee is poor, and the risk of burnout is high.

    In this webinar we’ll be sharing the findings and insightful commentary on what triggers burnout with professionals in UK businesses, identifying trends across family set-ups, industries and seniority of position, as well as offering key insights for employers on preventative approaches to burnout.

    You’ll hear from Rob Bravo, Director of Wellbeing at Talking Talent and Sally Evans, Senior Manager - Talent, Inclusion & Wellbeing at PwC on successful strategies to support employee’s holistic wellbeing, as well as leading employer panellists and an industry expert sharing their experiences and perspectives.
  • Should employees bring their personal lives to the workplace? Recorded: May 24 2017 63 mins
    James Marsh, HRreview; Heidi Allan, Neyber; Marcus Underhill, Staffcare; Charles Cotton, CIPD
    People often associate stress with workload, but issues that arise outside work are often the biggest triggers and contributors to mental ill-health – troubled relationships, financial worries or family problems. We spend so much of our time working that it’s almost inevitable we cannot leave our problems at the office door.

    But is it fair for employers to ask questions about individuals’ personal circumstances? And is it appropriate or practical to offer support?

    A range of wellbeing experts and HR practitioners explore these issues, debate best practice and provide practical guidance on a number of topics which could include:

    •Types of stress and how they manifest at work.
    •The implications of stress at work, and why work-life balance is an increasingly anachronistic idea.
    •Ways of dealing with stress – should employers be proactive or stay out of it?
    •How to equip employees to deal with stress at work (i.e Neyber)

    STATE OF THE NATION – The DNA of Financial Wellbeing, 2017

    Key findings. The last 12 months have seen great progress, however recent economic changes have bought us some big challenges and we will need to stay focused.

    Encouragingly, employee wellbeing is starting to be recognised. Financial worries are still employee’s biggest concern.

    Many employers are starting to think about their employee finances more broadly.

  • Flexible and Family Friendly Working: The Competitive Advantage Recorded: Nov 9 2016 61 mins
    James Marsh, HRR; Jennifer Liston-Smith, My Family Care; Ian Temple, Hydrogen; Carolanne Minashi, UBS; Richard Seville, P&G
    80% of people actively look for flexible working options in prospective employers. So why do so few employers enable and support flexible working despite the fact that the ‘right to request’ flexible working for all employees has been in place for over 2 years?

    We’ll be sharing our latest research findings to shed light on the needs, wants and challenges from both sides of the employee/employer fence.

    Leading employers will be joining us to share their experience and the challenges and benefits of embracing flexible working.
  • The guide to more efficient recruiting. Recorded: Nov 3 2016 52 mins
    James Marsh, HRreview; Chris Lowery, iCIMS
    The longer a vacancy remains open, cost per hire continues to increase, productivity suffers, and competitive candidates begin opting for employers who extend an offer sooner. Employers are now estimating that they lose more than £9,500 per vacancy that isn’t filled within 3 months. It is important to continuously explore options to consolidate, structure, and improve your hiring process. Software can help solve these issues and structure the recruitment process so all information is in one place. The result is a better means of finding, hiring, and retaining top talent. This webinar will walk you through statistics and steps to begin hiring more efficiently while also highlighting a case study to demonstrate an example of how these best practices really work.

    James Marsh, HRreview; Jon Cowell, Edgecumbe Consulting; Gary Taylor, BSI Group; Diane Harpham, EDF Energy
    This leadership webinar outlines a new theory of leadership for the 21st century: the incomplete leader. Jon Cowell, Chief Executive of Edgecumbe Consulting, discusses the notion of incomplete leadership using the Primary Colours® Model of Leadership. The successful application of these ideas have helped individual leaders and leadership teams from across the world align their personal and collective efforts to bring effective leadership teams together. We will also hear how these leadership ideas have been adopted by two different organisations, BSI Group and EDF Energy, to help them focus their leadership efforts to create the conditions for their organisations to succeed.
  • Maternity & Paternity coaching Recorded: May 26 2016 61 mins
    James Marsh, HRr; Jennifer Liston-Smith, My Family Care; Kulbir Shergill, KPMG; Louise Marshman, IBM; Catherine Oliver, SKY
    Employees going through the transition to parenthood can be lost from the most demanding roles in the workforce and/or from the talent pipeline, unless we pay attention to this area.
    Coaching that acknowledges the challenges of new parenthood, and focuses on communicating, prioritising, being influential and proactive at work can make the difference between employees returning long term, or leaving again. And equipping line managers for effective, timely communication as well as tips on avoiding pitfalls makes a huge difference.
    In this webinar we examine the business case and hear first-hand from employers who are reaping the benefits.
  • Global Mobility Recorded: May 5 2016 56 mins
    Robert Leeming, HRreview; Jurga McCluskey, Deloitte; Helen Walton, Astrazeneca UK
    More and more companies are taking an international view, in order to try and insulate themselves against economic woes in individual countries and are opening offices in far flung climbs.

    So with this in mind how should HR departments approach the task of making businesses more mobile? How should issues regarding ever changing legal and immigration rules be approached for example. And how should HR departments deal with the difficult task of assisting employees in relocating individuals and the more complex task of relocating families.
  • Shared Parental Leave - One year on Recorded: Apr 12 2016 60 mins
    James Marsh, HRreview; Jennifer Liston-Smith, My Family Care; Xanic Jones, Citi; Kristen Doherty, Accenture
    So what has been the impact of Shared Parental Leave? Is it a revolution that’s finally taken the gender issue out of parenting, or still a small ripple among a few daring pioneers?

    One year on from the legislation coming into effect, this webinar will look at the following areas:

    • How employers have changed their parental pay and policies.
    • Take-up, strategic impact and the factors that have influenced it
    • What challenges and successes employers have experienced since implementing changes.
    • What employers have learnt and how it has affected their broader approach to working parents
  • Gender Pay Gap Recorded: Mar 9 2016 56 mins
    Robert Leeming, HRreview; Ed Bowyer, Hogan Lovells; Amanda Jones, Maclay Murray & Spens; Jessica Wade, WISE
    It is sometimes difficult to believe that there is still an issue with gender equality in the UK. The issue is rising on the Government’s agenda though and it has been announced that companies of a certain size will be compelled to make public the pay levels of their employees. But is enough being done or is any legislation that aims to exert further governmental control over business a bad idea?
  • Learning in the Social Age Recorded: Nov 27 2015 61 mins
