Becoming an employer of choice for working parents makes it so much easier to attract and keep talented people.
We work with partner organisations to discover what is working well and identify where change is needed to create an environment that is inclusive and welcoming for expectant and returning parents.
Our consultants want to help you make a cultural shift, so your workplace is an environment where working parents can be themselves and work at their full potential.
We work with our partners to create strategies that focus resources on taking the key steps that will have real, lasting impact.
We help organisations become an employer of choice for working parents, and achieve increased productivity and gender diversity at all levels.
Family Friendly Review
A deep dive evaluation of family policies, processes, benefits,
training and provision by a specialist consultant, leading to a tailored recommendations report that will benchmark your company against similar organisations and highlight the next
steps to becoming a family friendly employer of choice.
The Family Friendly Review provides you with a bespoke action plan and understanding of where best to focus resources to most effectively create an inclusive environment for returning parents, where female staff will be able to successfully re-engage after maternity leave and continue their career progression to senior levels.
The Family Friendly Review consists of:
Set up meeting - with key stakeholders, to identify resources to review, including policies, benefits, processes, training materials and employee feedback such as surveys and exit interviews. Returning Works will assist with gaining employee feedback through providing questions for a survey, if required.
Interim report - this will give an outline of the findings, including an assessment of whether your organisation is currently 'compliant', 'best practice' or an 'employer of choice’. This stage will highlight if any further materials or evidence is needed to complete the evaluation and prepare the recommendations report.
Final report (pdf or presentation) – comprises of an overview of the scope and evaluation phase, benchmarking data and a tailored action plan for addressing the issues identified during the Review.
Next steps meeting - discussion of the findings and detailed recommendations given in the report.
