What we do

We help organisations put caring cultures into action. Our impactful coaching and learning programmes make people feel supported in the moments that matter - from expectancy and parenthood to (peri)menopause and crisis.

Why it matters

Every organisation wants the best for their staff, and yet most people don’t feel cared for in life’s crucial moments. Bridging this gap through ongoing, expert-led support helps to boost employees’ wellbeing and performance, while making your company more profitable, reputable and human.

73%

of working fathers feel that there’s not enough workplace support for new dads

50%

of women who take time off work due to menopause don’t tell their employer why

33%

of people looking to move jobs are doing so to protect their mental and physical health

Why Urban Hatch?

Wellbeing at work is more than just a box to be ticked. We put heart and innovation into every programme we design to make sure it makes a lasting difference to individuals, their managers, and the business as a whole.

What sets us apart

  • Fresh formats: from digital tools to small-group coaching, we keep innovating to drive greater impact
  • All-round support: we coach individuals and their managers to fuel change on all fronts
  • Finger on the pulse: we shine light on the issues and people that are often forgotten

What we don’t believe in

  • Monologues: our coaches get people to engage and participate
  • One-size fits all: we design bespoke programmes to fit your organisation's culture and priorities
  • Box-ticking: addressing the same old issues in the same old way doesn’t drive transformation (nor participation rates)

"Companies should have good policies to encourage hiring females, because women make up more than 50% of the population. Women look at things completely differently to men, and it’s a waste that we don’t utilize this capability."

Cher Wang CEO of HTC

Moments that matter
