Maternity and Paternity

The Management Guide

This course takes you through the process of working with an employee from the moment she informs you of her pregnancy, to the point where she returns to work, and beyond. It addresses motherhood and fatherhood at work, placing these in the context of managing your whole team, and building on your existing people skills to do so.

The resource introduces the 'A frame'. The A frame helps you to successfully structure conversations with your employee and has been developed especially for this course by a leading expert.

Further expert input from within well known public and private sector organisations adds sound advice and insights on people management, legal, diversity and change management aspects of supporting new parents in your team.

Why do I need a special guide to Maternity and Paternity?

When an employee becomes a parent it is a huge change in their life. The process starts from the moment you are informed of the pregnancy and continues beyond your employee's return. How you handle the process as a manager influences the employee's well-being and their commitment to returning, as well as how the wider team and organisation are affected.

Completion of this programme will help individual managers, and the organisations in which they work, develop better strategic handling of maternity/ paternity. In turn, this supports retention and attraction of the best possible talent pool and the effective management of working parents as part of a team.

Successfully managing new parents at work will, over time, increase the flexibility of your workforce to respond to the trends and needs of today's business and working environment.
