About this talk

While some organizations remain unresponsive to the transitions in their employees’ lives, smart companies understand that proactively supporting employees through important life events is not just compassionate, it’s good business. More and more high-profile companies such as Google, Netflix, Adobe, and Microsoft are offering extended paid maternity and paternity leave as a talent attraction and retention tool. Having family-friendly benefits and policies is a start, but it is not enough. The most positive impact on organizational outcomes occurs when leaders foster a supportive work-life culture. In this signature research conducted in partnership between Kindercare Education and HCI, we explore how organizations are supporting working parents before, during, and after their leave for a birth or an adoption. Based on a research study of almost 300 U.S. organizations, you will learn: Benchmarks and future plans for family-friendly benefits and policies, including paid leave How effective these work-life offerings are at attracting talent and preventing turnover How HR functions can help working parents assimilate back into workforce regardless of the amount of leave taken All registrants will receive a copy of the research report.
