There has been an explosion of interest in extended paternity leave recently, further propelled to national news headlines by Theresa May’s focus on this topic during her last days in post as Prime Minister. No doubt your employees are asking about your stance on paternity leave vs shared parental leave and the Government is now asking for opinions as part of a wider consultation on proposals to support families.
Government consultations on transparency regarding flexible working and Parental Leave and pay close on 11th October and 29th November.
In this timely webinar in partnership with My Family Care / Bright Horizons we’ll give you the inside track on the topics, how best to respond as well as how to communicate your position as an employer externally and internally while the consultation is ongoing. Crucially, what are the immediate and future implications for employers for attracting and retaining talent?
We’re delighted to be joined by Debbi Jackson - Assistant Director - Family Related Leave and Pay at Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), who’ll be providing an overview of the consultations. Carolanne Minashi, Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion at UBS, will be sharing her thoughts and in depth experience from an employer’s POV.
To complete the panel, Jennifer Liston-Smith, Head of Thought Leadership at My Family Care / Bright Horizons, will be contributing her broad experience of working with award-winning employers as a sought-after consultant on family-friendly best practice.
